Re: perl test fails
Hmmm, don't see how it can have anything to do with the mapping of a
networked drive, since the problem started on the NT4 box, at which time
the scriptlet was located in /cygdrive/e/cygwin/rnc/try.
Since I wanted to demonstrate that it worked on the Linux box (having
tripped over that one originally!) each time I hacked one copy of the
script I then had to move to the other machine and duplicate the changes
I'd just made. Clearly this was error-prone, so it made sense to just
use the copy on the Linux box. On the NT4 it's accessible as
And no, I've never heard of smbntsec. What's it mean/do?

Thanks for this and clearly my scriptlet was broken. I've now tried both alternatives as suggested below. Both work perfectly under Linux. Neither works under NT4.
script is executable
I damn well am!
To eliminate error further, I'm now running just one copy of the script, since the disk I use on my Linux box is mapped to the i: drive on the NT4 box.
Are you suggesting that you're using a mapped drive from your Linux box?
That may be the problem. Do you have 'smbntsec' set in your CYGWIN
