I didn't uninstall any individual files. I uninstalled Perl, the package.

Here is my MSDOS path:

em32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Sha

Cygwin or not, if Perl is in both C:\opt\cygwin\bin and C:\opt\asperl\bin, I will always get the cygwin version.

Oh, maybe you only have cygwin in the PATH under bash, not in DOS? Then you are correct about separation of AS and
Cygwin Perls. I have both in PATH all the time so I have to be more careful.
