Re: Makefile command interpreter
Setting export SHELL=cmd.exe
calls cmd.exe alright, but then sits there forever waiting for input.
Just a wild guess, as I have not tested this:
Have you tried cmd.exe with the /c switch? If cmd.exe is called without
that switch, it expects input from the standard input (console).
Yes, tried that, the result always is
'-c' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Something is messing with the argument list.
No difference between these two there:
SHELL:=/cygdrive/c/windows/system32/cmd.exe -- /C
Looks like that might be on the right track, but how do I get arguments
