When using a line like "for (( i=1 ; i<=5 ; i+=1 )); do echo $i; done" in a bash script one expects to get a list of figures ranging from 1 to 5 right?
I've never had problems with such constructs on my Linux machine but when doing this in a cygwin bash shell, then it works fine when typed in at the command line but fails with a syntax error "Bad for loop variable" when executed in a script.
Where did I go wrong? Ideas anybody?
Thanks in advance,
