Re:For Corinna Executable bit in FAT

Hi Corina,

First thanx for ur reply....
I hv seen ur name at lots of places in CYGWIN world.
I am glad u took the trouble of answering my rather basic question.

But one thing....
I tried one thingds suggested on the net.

With this I could set executable bit to a file.
Do u think it is the right approach.

Because switiching to NTFS will take a heavy toll on my very limited time

Kindly tell me wjat shud I do
