PHP cmdline issues - Win + Cygwin

    Hmph!!

    I've taken to using PHP for general scripting, and it's been working pretty well, but now something's happened & I can't quite figure out what's going on.

    Here's the crux: If I run a script from anywhere but the directoy it resides in, I get: "Could not open input file: <fully qualified filename>."

    I'm running PHP 4.3.11, cygwin latest (just upgraded, again, to check), from a tcsh shell, script starts with:

    #! /usr/local/bin/php

    Which is where my php is installed. It runs great from the script-local directory, won't run from anywhere else.

    Anybody have a clue on this?

    Thanx,

    When you enter the fully qualified filename, are you using forward slashes or backward slashes?

    i.e. are you using DOS syntax or Unix syntax?

    Try the other one. :D

    Yeah, I've tried both forms. Anyway, the fully qualified filename is in the error message - I'm getting the script from the initial shell invocation. It seems something's happening on the PHP side, i.e., once PHP has started, it back-references the script and it can't find it.

    Well, PHP 4.0 is just released, maybe that fixes it.

    Answer:

    Build PHP under cygwin.

    I was lazy and was trying to use the windows pre-built php.

    BZZZT!

    The windows binaries aren't aware of cygwin directory specs & don't know how to handle it. Building everything under cygwin fixes it.
