If I type bash -i it starts processing the script

If I type bash --login -i I get the error:

bash: No such file or directory

I don't understand why suddenly it can't even find the script. Is the error message inaccurate or did I miss something really obvious?

If you give an absolute path to the script, does that solve the problem? – David Schwartz Jan 26 '12 at 9:46

If you are using Cygwin Bash, you can just call the script directly.

$ cd /tmp

$ echo 'echo Hello World!' >

$ ./
Hello World!
