Re: problem with subshells or childs?

Have you tried something like (with explicit .exe extension):

/bin/rsync -Cavz -e "/usr/bin/ssh.exe" /cygdrive/d/ server:/home/ml/backups/

Probably won't help.
As both with or without extension work for me.

If you call sh like this, sh will try to run the file as shell script.
And of course ls is not a shell script.
To run a binary command (or any command actually) with sh, the command should be:

sh -c ls
i need some help with this:
My plan was to use rsync via ssh from a bash script. But rsync could not run ssh for whatever reason: no such file or directory.

For quicker checking, invoking "bash -e ls" or just "sh ls" shows the same problem - see below.

sh -c ls works. However, the the original problem was that this little shell script is not working:

/bin/rsync -Cavz -e "/usr/bin/ssh" /cygdrive/d/ server:/home/ml/backups/

Error is:
rsync: Failed to exec "ssh: No such file or directory (2)
rsync error: error in IPC code (code 14) at /home/lapo/packaging/tmp/rsync-2.6.6/pipe.c(83)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at /home/lapo/packaging/tmp/rsync-2.6.6/io.c(434)

rsync cannot find /usr/bin/ssh, but it is there.
I also tried just "ssh", since it is in the path and /bin/ssh.
