I am trying to run grep (cygwin) within Xemacs 21.4.22 on windows 7 enterprise laptop.
cd c: grep -n -r --include=*.java "foo" NUL: grep: NUL:: No such file or directory grep exited abnormally with code 2 at Tue Oct 04 12:53:15
cd c: grep -n -r --include=*.java "foo" * NUL: grep: NUL:: No such file or directory grep exited abnormally with code 2 at Tue Oct 04 12:56:55
c:>grep --version GNU grep 2.6.3 Copyright (C) 2009 Free Software Foundation, Inc. License GPLv3+: GNU GPL version 3 or later <http://gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html> This is free software: you are free to change and redistribute it. There is NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by law.
What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this?
Assuming that Xemacs was wrong, I tried it on emacs 23.2.1 (mingw) on the same laptop and it is getting the same error response.
This problem is discussed, with several possible solutions, at EmacsWiki http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/NTEmacsWithCygwin. I don’t have your exact setup here – so you would have to try the options there to see what works.
