Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-905) Recent change in cygwin appears to prevent the classpath for loop in the forrest command from working
Date Wed, 28 Feb 2007 21:49:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-905?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12476726

Gavin commented on FOR-905:
---------------------------

Someone who uses Forrest with Cygwin should try this.

In addition, may not be relevent but I got this in an email :-

<quote>...but as I understand it, Cygwin recently changed the default for how it handles
line endings.  This caused a lot of scripts that I had which contained DOS line endings to
break (even blank lines caused "syntax error: 
unexpected end of file"), as well as other problems that didn't seem to go away even after
converting my line endings to unix style.  I got the problem to disappear (without ever really
understanding it) by adding a system variable called "SHELLOPTS" with the value "igncr"...</quote>

Quote was by Steve Strobel.
