Re: How do I make scripts my PC executable

Wouldn't it be possible to omit the first two executable lines and
have the batch script read
    c:\cygwin\bin\bash -l ./ssh-backup-all

I posted a sample shell session. The "$ cat ssh-backup-all.bat" is what I typed into my shell and the "C:\cygwin\bin\bash ./ssh-backup-all" is the result (e.g. the output of the "cat" command; the contents of "./ssh-backup-all").

And I posted alternative content for the batch script that would save you from putting two unnecessary lines in the shell script. Or so I thought.

The -l (or --login) option has bash read its usual startup files, thereby avoiding the need four the course (".") commands at the beginning of the shell script.
