RE: [Condor-users] Condor_exec.exe +Cygwin

Hi Matt,

How can I call the cygwin shell script(named : validation) from the
executable .bat?

Can you help me(give me an example of such .bat executable) ?

Thanks in advance.

problem - how does condor know that it should run this via cygwin (to be
more exact by bash)

solution - don't bother trying, to make condor do it, do it yourself 

Ensure cygwin's executable directory is always installed ina common
location. Use a bat (not bash) executable This should set the path to
include cygwin and then execute the shell script (transfered via the input
files setting) via bash ... (alternately set cygwin's location directly via
environment=PATH=<blah> but you still need the bat calling shell script to
