So write a mingw.bat file that does something similar for cmd.exe.
It wonât be seen from Cygwin even if itâs in Cygwinâs path because Cygwin wonât run it without the â.batâ extension, and Cygwinâs mingw shell script wonât be run by cmd.exe, so the âmingwâ command will mean something completely different to each shell.
Incidentally, I see that I forgot to fix a /c -> /cygdrive/c in the script I posted. (I normally run with cygdrive mounted at the root, and write my scripts accordingly.)
