I am trying to create a "wrapper" Cygwin bash script to add

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.
If you write
in the batch file, then you'll get the msw "find" whether or not
any Cygwin directory is on your path.
Thanks for the quick reply. This is a feasible solution. However, I'd
rather find a solution where the batch script can remain "unaware" of
its Cygwin context. Once I get things working, I plan on creating bash
script wrappers for many Windows batch scripts, so I'd like to make the
changes in the Cygwin environment, rather than editing each batch script
I'll keep looking at let you know if I find anything.
