I don't see your point.

I stated that there is no Linux nor Cygwin nor Windows nor BSD bash.
It's just GNU bash and if you have a "how do I 'foo' in bash"
question, it's almost definitely not Cygwin related.

I don't understand how someone who's "not new to Linux" could think
that copy and paste is a shell thing. It isn't "in Linux".
