you use pdksh? When you could use ksh93?

I got it past that point, but it chokes on some of cygwin's hybrid file
nameing. For example it doesn't like the "//" notation to reference a
file server, or the ":" in "c:/oracle/ora92/bin".
I did find a workaround though. I mount c:/oracle as /oracle, I can
reference it without the ":".
That said, I went back to pdksh for use with cygwin. There were just too
many problems trying to run Windows apps from ksh93 because of the
differences between with file and path naming conventions.
