	Right.  It has the two files I mentioned below, and
nc.exe isn't a text file or makefile -- but is shown by the
cygwin "file" command as an executable.


You said:

Whereas, when I used the file command, it printed out exactly
what you were searching for.  Thus my assertion that your file
command is the likely culprit.

As for the not-executable error message, have you checked,
as suggested elsewhere, whether or not you have some cheap
anti-virus installed that blocks programs that are not viruses
like 'nc'?
