I have just installed release 1.7 under Windows 7, 64bit. The
setup.exe program seems to have changed and you can't any longer set
the Default Text File Type to DOS/Text. I have a lot of scripts that
won't run under bash as long as the extra CR's are not removed. I know
of the tool doc2unix, however there are other obstacles too so having
the auto-conversion is the best solution for me.
I can, using the mount-command
$ mount -f -o text,posix=0 c: /cygdrive/c
change the mode to text:
However, this does not fix the problem and I still get the error:
./foo.sh: line 1: $'\r': command not found
./foo.sh: line 13: syntax error: unexpected end of file
Have you tried all Eric's advice in his bash upgrade announcements?
