RE: Automating a Cygwin Script From Windows

I wrote a Bash/ Perl backup/ archive/ shutdown solution for my Windows/
Cygwin and GNU/ Linux SOHO network.  I light it off from my primary
Windows desktop via a Windows shortcut that points to a Windows batch
file that runs a Bash script that runs Perl scripts which do the work.
The batch file runs on Windows and will pass along up to nine command
line arguments.  The Bash script runs on Cygwin and GNU/Linux and passes
along an unlimited number of command-line arguments.  Here are the
Windows batch file and Bash script:

    2009-08-28 21:11:01 dpchrist@dc86yxb1 ~/Dpchrist-Shutdown/example
    $ cat shutdown-soho.bat
    C:\cygwin\bin\bash U:\Dpchrist-Shutdown\example\shutdown-soho %1 %2
%3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

    2009-08-28 21:15:48 dpchrist@dc86yxb1 ~/Dpchrist-Shutdown/example
    $ cat shutdown-soho | egrep '^(#\!|/)'
    #! /usr/bin/bash
    /usr/bin/dcshutdown --use_at --use_sudo $* dpchrist@p3450
    /usr/bin/dcshutdown $* Administrator@a64x23800p Administrator@p31000
Administrator@p3800 Administrator@dc86yxb1
    /usr/bin/dcshutdown --shutdown_delay=0 --ssh_opts='-p 222' $*
    /usr/bin/dcshutdown $* localhost
