Running a shell script in a windows environment

Hi Laurie,
Scripts with a .sh are Bourne shell scripts. This is not required in Unix-like systems including MacOS.
There  no Bourne-like shell in Windows. Cygwin can be installed, providing a Unix-like environment in Windows but there is no native environment.
Other Unix-like subsystems operable under Windows are MinGW and the services for UNIX package which Microsoft provides.
Windows batch files can also be written which have a .bat or .cmd suffix. These are similar to Windows interactive prompt commands and syntax.
