In addition, most sh scripts can be run by Bash without modification.

    Spam link?

    When I try to download from the mediafire page that opens when I select the link above, I'm getting spam pages and advertising and no download. I'd appreciate a confirmation that this is a valid download link.

    I'm pretty sure I've got it fixed (thanks for the help and the help.html)! Biggrin
    Once again, I cannot get the .bash_history file to appear at all, so I'm not 100% sure that works. Other than that, it's all good! Biggrin

    And, bummer, I was gonna do a package with unixtils Sad Oh well. I think mine is fundamentally different from yours. Guess that means I'll have to download and see.

    that's okay, I'll just finish

    that's okay, I'll just finish up nano portable. Maybe i'll use MSYS to build the latest nano.

    I'll look at you're source and try ot figure out how to add my functions to yours, or something like that . . .

    good job!!

    bash history is not preserved, that is good.

    aight just a couple things.
    Make sure u add the readme in the app directory (i am not sure if u still need this so if someone could just say so that would b great)
    Also i think to maintain paf u need the default data dir in the APP dir, so just re-add that.
    Finally add the correct ini file to the Other\Source dir.

    good job with this

    Okay, I anylzed this.

    In your source, you need to have your copyright, john's copyright, and the general GNU license header:

    Legal Copyright should be LegalCopyright "PortableApps.com & Contributors", not John T. Haller.

    Section PATH
      ReadEnvStr $R1 PATH
      StrCpy $R1 "$R1;$EXEDIR\App\Bash\usr\local\wbin"
      ${Locate} "$EXEDIR\App\Bash\usr\local\wbin" "/L=D /G=0" "AddDirectoryToPath"
      System::Call 'Kernel32::SetEnvironmentVariableA(t, t) i("PATH", R1).n'
    SectionEnd
    
    Function AddDirectoryToPath
      StrCpy $R1 "$R1;$R9"
      Push ""
    FunctionEnd

    Why not just System::Call 'Kernel32::SetEnvironmentVariableA(t, t) i("PATH", $EXEDIR\App\Bash\usr\local\wbin" ).n'?

    You should have the standard messages about things not being found, etc.

    You need TheEnd:
    newadvsplash::stop /WAIT

    so that the splash dll will be deleted and not left behind.

    Rename `C:\.bash_history` `$EXEDIR\Data\.bash_history` rename doesn't work across drives.

    In the appinfo.ini
    Publisher=daBomb69 & PortableApps.com should be Win-Bash &PortableApps.com

    [Version]
    PackageVersion=1.0.0.0
    DisplayVersion=1

    Should be the version of WinBash and a short version of Win-Bash, i.e. 1.6.4.0. and 1.6

    Your help.html is damaged. The bottom part doesn't show, both IE and Firefox.

    I noticed you don't have langauge switching. If WinBash doesn't support it, then that's fine. If it does (and I don't know) you will need to support it.

    Out of date versions

    I've used unxutils for many years but the version of sed included is very much out of date compared the Gnu utils version. I think it should be possible to include the Gnu versions instead. They have more features and are also the versions commonly found in Linux distros.

    They can be downloaded from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net

    coreutils

    There's also a port of the Busybox utilities to Windows:
    https://github.com/pclouds/busybox-w32
    Makes a nice alternative to UnxUtils and GnuWin32.

    I've also been working on porting some Minix and NetBSD versions of common utilies to Windows. Working on trying to come up with an all native Windows alternative to using msys.

    Curent path variable setting is poor

    disclaimer: I know next to nothing about NSIS, so the remarks below may seem quaintly easy to remedy to those who are so knowledgeable. If so, would someone so apprise of the remedy on this forum. Better--any such remedies should be a part of the help available for any release.

    The path environment variable should be set in an easily modifiable '.ini' file in the executable directory. The current path setting is next to useless; almost no one is seriously going to use those very old UnxUtils--no matter how useful they were in their time--if updated mingw and/or gnuwin32 binaries are available with a simple resetting of the path.
