Cygwin bash script is removing equals sign from command call. How do I
escape it so that = is sent to command?
I tried different things like escaping = with \ and enclosing it with ""
and '' but none of them worked.
*Here is the relevant command in my makefile.*
*$(elabcmd) = $(XELAB_DEFAULT) \-generic VERSION=10*
*Here is the result:*
cygwin prompt:> make compile
*Running: xelab.exe -generic VERSION 10*
*(note that the equal sign is not there)*
*xelab.exe -generic VERSION=10*
Thanks for any help.
