I posted a while back complaining that bash.exe wouldn't hand off to the
right command interpreter even if the shell script started with something
After applying Geoffrey Noer's patch (well, OK, getting a cygwin.dll from
someone who did - Thanks Ron!) it did work.
However, the following still does not work:
%> /bin/sh perl-script.pl
In this case bash still tries to process the file as if it is a bourne
shell script. Why would you ever want to do that you ask? Weeell, believe
it or not I'm trying to run a gnu makefile from a cmd prompt. It actually
works, kind of.
Has anyone attempted to do/fix this?
(Gzipped, patched versions of cygwin.dll or bash.exe gladly accepted via
