Re: cygwin and the rest of the Windows

when I run this in cygwin:
bash --login perl, I get the error:
/usr/bin/perl: No such file or directory
simiarly if I run the perl.bat as your suggested, I
get similar error claiming that /usr/bin/perl is not
found...okay, I am confused here...

so I did...and (in DOS) I try this:
\cygwin\bin\bash -c
/usr/bin/perl: line 1: command not found
(my first line is the usual "#!/usr/bin/perl")

you told me to be aware of path changes in the two I am confused...which one should I use?
