    Windows subsystem for Linux and mixed (Windows + Linux) development


    I am developing some C++ based code using Visual Studio 2019 VC++. The code builds using Makefiles and VC++ in a devenv command shell. But the testing code was written a long time ago and is based on Unix shell scripts and binaries so I need the unix/linux shell to run the tests. Now in the past I used Cygwin to do this by starting the Cygwin shell after setting up the VS20XX development env using vcvars bat file and any other env settings needed for VS20XX. I could then run unix stuff and access the dirs needed for the VStudio build binaries, etc.

    I assumed I could do the same with Windows Subsystem for Linux but based on my experience so far it appears like it is a more isolated environment and basically appropriate for doing Linux stuff in almost a separate world from the Windows command environment. I know how to acess the filesystem, etc. from WSL but it doesn't seem like there is any east way to do the same thing I do with Cygwin where I get everything "setup" in Windows cmd prompt and then just turn that environment into a Linux/Bash capable environment for the testing scripts.

    If anybody knows if this is possible and I am just missing something I would appreciate it, since it seems silly to keep using Cygwin with WSL already available, but so far I can't figure out how to "mix" the two environments.

    TIA,
    -Scott
