Several people I work with, who are even less technical than I am, use
cygwin and edit scripts with various editors. So this will not work.

I don't know what mounts are, or how to use them.

echo '(set -o igncr) 2>/dev/null && set -o igncr; # comment is needed'
This did not work.

bash: SHELLOPTS: readonly variable

I don't know what the IFS variable is, or how to use it.
