This project's purpose is to create a native win32 version of GNU bash without requiring the cygwin DLLs.
There is a (mostly) functional 1.14.7 version available. It currently doesn't work well with subprocesses,redirection and signals, but most of the normal shell features are available.
- we will NOT use cygwin. We think the best way to build the shell is to base it on the existing GNU source, and then build platform-specific code that deals with OS calls. For example, subprocesses today are implemented as NT threads.
