Thanks for the advice regarding line length.
I will try to remember to rein in my margins when emailing to cygwin.
Thanks for your recognition of PATHEXT's potential value;
reassuring to know I am not alone in my delusions.
Regarding providing code, I am somewhat stale (though I spent my first 20 work years
immersed in system code, assembly/C/Algol/Pascal/C++, building firmware for bit-sliced processors, etc.)
The patch to which I referred is one I found while researching the topic;
https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2007-09/msg00127.html is one reference to it.
It is old and likely out of date.
