I don't really *need* them to work on Windows. I just thought I could 
use Cygwin to develop and maintain them while I'm on my laptop and not 
connected. The final destination of all my ksh scripts will be Solaris. 
That's where they need to run

I'll be able to live with the ksh from www.kornshell.com. It's closer to 
what Sun distributes.
