'[EE] Editor under Cygwin'

I've just begun playing around with Cygwin, because not having a C
compiler under Windows is a pain.  But I cannot find an editor.  I tried
vi, vim, emacs, gedit -- none of them are there.  I just did the basic
download and installation of Cygwin, so perhaps that does not include an
editor, although I would find that incredible to believe.  More likely I
did something wrong, or am doing something wrong, or both.  Anyway,  the
bash shell comes up OK, and gcc appears to work, and /bin has a lot of
programs, so things appear to be in order.  Except no editor.  Any
suggestions?

I like JEdit, http://www.jedit.org  
Nice set of features expected from programmer's editor.
BTW, mingw is a free C/C++ compiler under windows.
In combination with QT (http://www.trolltech.com) gives you a nice cross-platform
development system.

Bloodshed C/C++ is another good choice.  Inlcudes an IDE.

I haven't installed Cygwin in a while, but I seem to remember that it
comes with nano.

Once you figure out the Cygwin packaging system, you'll see packages
to download all the popular editors.

I know there's a Cygwin-enabled Emacs.  I've used it before.  It's not
part of the minimal download, however.

Regards,

Yeah, I've got it now.   This is a reply to the several people who
answered, with thanks.
