Heya sauoq,

Thanks for taking the time to check it out. I just had to delete a whole bunch of response text, as I finally got it to work under cygwin using the following script:

#!perl -w $CYGWIN_BIN="C:\\cygwin\\bin"; $ENV{TEST_FUNC} = "() {\necho Hey, it works!;\n };\n"; system(("$CYGWIN_BIN\\bash.exe", "-c \"declare -f\"")); system(("$CYGWIN_BIN\\bash.exe", "-c \"TEST_FUNC\""));

Initially, using your
perl -le '$ENV{sauoq}="() { echo sauoq; }"; print `bash -c sauoq`'
I had problems where bash didn't understand what sauoq was. However, the script above does the trick

Thanks to everyone for the interest guys (especially sauoq) - you guys saved my butt!
