Thanks, Larry. What I mean by external file is a file created by
Windows (not created in the cygwin environment). Files that are
writable in windows appear to be readonly (000) in the bash shell. I
assume that because they're owned by me I can chmod them to modify
As a non-domain user, you should be able to create a file in Windows
and see that you have access to that file in Cygwin without modifications.
Try this at a DOS prompt (and not in bash or other Cygwin shell):
echo foo > foo
ls -l foo
When I do this on my home machine where I'm working as a local user, I see:
-rwx------+ 1 lhall None 6 Sep 2 18:08 foo
