Re: Howto force winXP use cygwin "if test -n"

Run the above from within bash?
No, from the windows cmd shell, I only need "if test -n", if I run it
within bash I'd have to install all the apps I need again :(
Now I think you're starting to understand. ;-) If you want to run a
shell script written for a particular shell, you need that shell. If
that doesn't make sense to you, think of the reverse. How would
you run a batch script without cmd.exe?
FWIW, if your script only uses shell built-ins, then you only need
to install bash and cygwin packages. While I don't recommend this
configuration, it should do what you want if your script conforms
to the limitations I just mentioned.
