Thanks, that is very useful. The trouble is the CROs and pharmas using MS-DOS are going to be reluctant to do their batch runs from a Cygwin window, although they might be persuaded to call Cygwin utilities from the MS-DOS window. The above won't work from an MS-DOS window (or it didn't when I tried it).
