I have a script that I run, the script is:

zcat -c $i | grep $1 >> searchresults.txt
echo Finsihed searching $i , moving on to the next file...
Now, this used to work just fine, but now I receive the following error
$ ./findme.bash 10.65.118.
'/findme.bash: line 2: syntax error near unexpected token `do
'/findme.bash: line 2: ` for i in $( ls *.gz ); do
The only thing that I can think of that might have changed was that I
recently downloaded and installed the mjpegtools for cygwin, which might
have been compiled under a different version of cygwin, earlier/devel?
... at anyrate, I've run this same script on another linux box for
testing, and it still works just fine, which is why I'm back to thinking
that this is a problem with my install of cygwin.
Is there a way to repair the existing installation, or a way to confirm
that all of the installed software is the correct version? I've already
run the setup, and had it perform the updates that were available, but
it still is erroring out.
Read the announcement for the recent release of bash and run your script
through 'd2u'. The former should familiarize you with the basis for this
issue and possible solutions in general and the latter will fix your
current problem. ;-)
