- Subject: Remove Cygwin Path for Called Batch Script
I am trying to create a "wrapper" Cygwin bash script to add
functionality to an existing Windows batch script. In my Cygwin script,
I would like to call the batch file with something like:
cmd.exe /k batch-script.bat params
Calling the script in this fashion seems to generally work (in that the
script executes). However, I have trouble because the Cygwin path is
prepended to the Windows path in the batch script. As a result, trying
to use the Windows "find" use Cygwin's instead.
My question is, whether there is a way to easily strip the Cygwin
entries from the path for the batch call. Hopefully the solution would
be portable, and not affect the environment outside of the bash script.
