Can I invoke bash with scripts I want it to run as parameters? For instance,
if I'd like a bat file that would execute bash, and then proceed to
automatically run a cygwin script at at c:\foo, I'd want something like
bash --login -i -execute c:\foo
Bash obviously doesn't contain an "-execute" option, but is there some
method to achieve this?
