My C: drive where I am doing the test is an NTFS partition.
thus, I do have CYGWIN set properly:
CYGWIN="binmode ntea" ( I am using ntea, cause I eventually will be trying to do this on
I have done `chmod 777 myscript`.
Can you get this to work on your PC without adding the #!/bin/sh line nor invoking it
with the shell?
