It is not clear what you mean by "in cygwin". If you run the bash shell,
for example, then it indeed makes the various arguments available as $1,
etc., and $# works as expected.
Perhaps you should give us more detail. I would suggest including:
- the script
- telling us the program from which you invoke the script (bash?), and
exactly how you invoke it
- one or more of the command lines that do not seem to work as you expect
I can assure you that I use bash and bash scripts, with arguments and
fancy argument processing, all the time ...
