Re: Question on postinstall

Thanks, but I'm still not sure why then the Cygwin install asks you whether
you want Unix or DOS style files (EOF's).

After reading your post I did some further investigation and determined that
my problem is in my port of ksh and not specifically with Cygwin itself.

Does anyone know of a Cygwin port for ksh that lets me choose between Unix
and DOS EOF's or at least uses DOS EOF's?
