- Subject: running .bat files from bash
I've noticed that if I want to run a .bat file in bash I have to cd to the
directory it's in first in order for it to run properly
For example, if I want to run c:\foo\bar.bat I have to use:
if I try
it doesn't work properly. It seems that if I attempt the latter, the .bat file
is launched, but doesn't work properly. The particular .bat file I'm running
compiles a Java source tree, and when I try to launch it via
/cygdrive/c/foo/bar.bat, the messages sent to standard output suggest it's
working fine, but none of the .class files are created.
Has anyone else come across this?
