a tiny little bug in bash2.0.2, or possibly in "cd":
bash-2.02$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.02.1(2)-release (i586-pc-cygwin32)
Copyright 1998 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
bash-2.02$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-4.0 TIGGER 20.1 (0.3/1/1) 1998-12-3 20:39:18 i686 unknown
bash-2.02$ ls -F
BUILD              INDEX              build.html         index.html
CONFIGURE          README             configure.html     specific.html
FAQ                SPECIFIC           faq.html           test.html
FINALINSTALL       TEST               finalinstall.html
bash-2.02$ cd CONFIGURE
bash: cd: CONFIGURE: Is a directory

The minor buglet is that the error message improperly states that 
"CONFIGURE" is a directory when it really is a file, as can be seen in
the above output from "ls -F".

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"gnu-win32-request@cygnus.com" with one line of text: "help".
