Hello -

I see it advertised on the website and in the Take Command help files that it's possible to have a Bash shell tab. However, I can't figure out how to get a bash shell tab to open. Even more importantly and to the point, is it possible to execute Bash shell scripts with Take Command? If so, how?

Thanks,
Dan.

On the main menu, do Tabs > Run, then enter C:\Cygwin\bin\bash.exe. Or, add a button to the Tabbed Toolbar. Or, do "start /tab C:\Cygwin\bin\bash.exe" in a TCC tab in TC.

I understand now, thanks. I have avoided installing Cygwin and don't plan to - but that's fine, just so that I understand that Take Command does not include its own Bash-compatible command line environment.

Might be helpful for the Take Command documentation to mention this, even with something as simple as having a parenthetical comment in the documentation to the effect of "(via a Cygwin installation, unrelated to Take Command)" to this effect.

Thanks,
Dan.
