What is ASH? Is it the same as BASH?  I opened a bash shell on my win95
install of cygwin and tried to find ash and couldn't find it anywhere?

>To update your installation, CREATE AN EMPTY DIRECTORY, cd to it, and

>Once you've downloaded setup, type:

>This procedure will only update the ash package.  If you have not

>Once the setup is complete you may remove this newly created directory.
>It will contain the setup.exe program, a setup log file, and the
>ash-20000627 tar file.  None of these are needed for further operation
