in reply to run in-program shell script under windows using cygwin

Sounds like you are using a Windows build of Perl, not a cygwin one. While cygwin knows how to execute /old/ (i.e. by looking for the shebang), Windows doesn't know anything about shebang lines (and wouldn't find /usr even if it did). Windows uses file associations to determine how to execute a non-binary.

[LanX]: probably I need to teach the app to restart after C-c Kill
[Corion]: LanX: Maybe have an infinite-loop cmd file? Much easier than trying to manage that from within Perl IMO
[Corion]: Alternatively, relaunch the application from cron (or a Windows cron) every minute
[LanX]: will try infinite loop ...
[Corion]: :START ... goto START
[LanX]: oh .bat you mean?
[LanX]: obscure cult ...
[Corion]: LanX: cmd.exe is just another way to launch Perl
[LanX]: I know its a cult... and I repent it every time
