I am using Cygwin 2.05. I am emailing you because of this:

> chmod --help
Usage: chmod [OPTION]... MODE[,MODE]... FILE...
  or:  chmod [OPTION]... OCTAL-MODE FILE...
  or:  chmod [OPTION]... --reference=RFILE FILE...
Change the mode of each FILE to MODE.

Each MODE is one or more of the letters ugoa, one of the symbols +-= and
one or more of the letters rwxXstugo.

I noticed that in order for a file to have x rights on windows it needs to
have executable extension. That is, if I have a script file with no
extension and x permissions on Unix, I don't see the x on windows. However,
if I copy the same file to a *.bat the x will show up without having to call
chmod a+x ...

Is this a bug, feature, as intended? Do I have to have executable
terminations for all files that I want to execute in windows?
