I have gone through Cygwin FAQ and documentation, did some googling
but could not find any answer to my cross system problem.
I currently work under Win Vista and have a proper Cygwin installation
I have to perform heavy tests on a Windows console executable program
say: MYPROG.exe (obtained by using MS Visual Studio).
To test such a program I have written a bash shell script, say:
MYSHELL.sh, that does the following things:
1/ Build up data files
2/ Launch my Win exe: MYPROG.exe
3/ Organise all the resulting data
This procedure works perfectly on my own machine and all my tests are
performed by only running MYSHELL.sh in my Cygwin console.
Now, I need to perform the same test procedure on another Win Vista
machine where Cygwin is not installed. I therefore have to find a
solution around the Win prompt (cmd.exe).
Basically, I can copy anything on that machine but I cannot install Cygwin.
Is there a way to run my script MYSHELL.sh within Win prompt by only
copying Cygwin dll (cygwin1.dll) at the right place and maybe changing
some settings ?
Would it be possible (better) to adopt another strategy that would be
to write a "macro" Win console exe file that can run in the Win prompt
and that would kind of embed / link with: cygwin1.dll, MYSHELL.sh,
I thank you in advance for any suggestion.
