I started a new thread as this is a different (although related) topic.
I have read the eCos documentation and followed the instructions for
downloading Cygwin and then installing Ecos.
I can run the Ecos configuration tool and build.
Cygwin appears to be installed correctly.
But when I type
arm-eabi-gdb -help
nothing happens and I get returned to the command prompt.
my path is set correctly and arm-eabi-gdb exists
I am getting very frustrated at this point and would be grateful of any
information anyone can supply in this regard

Thanks 

Graham
