Re: lauching a perl script from a .bat

I have developed a perl script to a remote user who

1) The perl script uses cygwin names like /cygdrive,
so I can't launch perl directly from a .bat file. I
suppose I have to launch cygwin's bash passing the
script as an argument. How do I do this?
man cygpath

BASH per se doesn't offer a solution to this issue--it knows only the Unix cocoon of Cygwin.

2) I would like to insert a basic cygwin installation
in the cd. It seems that zipping c:\cygwin and
unzipping it in his computer works. Is this a safe
Use the Cygwin installer ("Setup.exe" -- <>)--it handles setting up the registry entries used by the Cygwin "kernel" (i.e., Cygwin1.dll).

Download the packages you wish to install (use a mirroring tool such as wget, FTP Voyager or the Cygwin Setup.exe installer in "Download from Internet" mode) and burn the resulting files onto the CD you'll use to perform the installations.

Thank you very much in advance!
I hope it helps.
