Dear list,

I have finally found some time to install the new native winGRASS by 
Huidae Cho and it was OK.

I was wondering if it is possible to run some scripts I wrote (bash 
scripts, containing calls to perl scripts that also use gnuplot) under 
the new winGRASS. Based on my ignorance, this sounded to me like 
impossible (since it is a Minimalist GNU), then I read in the MinGW 
FAQ's that you could...

..."install Cygwin and the MinGW distribution in seperate directories 
(i.e. "C:\CYGWIN" and "C:\MINGW"), and make sure that the "/bin" 
subdirectory beneath your MinGW installation comes before Cygwin's 
"/bin" subdirectory in your PATH environment variable (i.e. 

To what extent would it be possible to access the cygwin functionality 
from the native winGRASS by using this approach?

Thanks and sorry in advance if my thought makes no sense at all, and 
even worse is unrelated.
