Windows services for unix - How do I run in batch

I just installed Windows Services for Unix. I want to create a ksh program and schedule it using the Windows scheduler. How would I go about doing it?

What would the command line look like?

Do I always have to be in a ksh shell to run the batch program even if it is not scheduled?

What if anything would I have to add the the Unix ksh script?

Do I have to setup anything special as far as the Windows Enviroment variables?

Thanks,
Rich

Windows does not actually execute 'the script'. Files ending on .ksh are only declared to be opened with ksh which has the same effect, but will hurt you in case you don't mind about that and try scheduled execution.

Add 'ksh c:\where\my\program\is.ksh' to scheduled execution instead of the script itsself (as its not executable by itsself).

Making many function calls can be costly in terms of stack space. One optimization that can be made is to use tail recursion.
