Re: 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.

If you write %SystemRoot%\system32\find in the batch file, then you'll get the msw "find" whether or not any Cygwin directory is on your path.

Hi Greg,

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 individually.

I'll keep looking at let you know if I find anything.
