I've got my GNUstep shell working with windows xp and can compile with shell, but how can I compile with a batch file?

This is the command line which works within the shell.

gcc `gnustep-config --objc-flags` -L /GNUstep/System/Library/Libraries test.m -o test.exe -lgnustep-base -lobjc

However, if I put this in a batch file I get...

--- batch file ---
C:\GNUstep\mingw\bin\gcc `gnustep-config --objc-flags` -L /GNUstep/System/Library/Libraries test.m -o test.exe -lgnustep-base -lobjc

--- batch file ---

Heres the errors...

C:\My Documents\ObjC>C:\GNUstep\mingw\bin\gcc 'gnustep-config --objc-flags' -L /GNUstep/System/Library/Libraries test.m -o test.exe -lgnustep-base -lobjc
gcc: 'gnustep-config: No such file or directory
cc1obj.exe: error: unrecognized command line option "-fobjc-flags'"

C:\My Documents\ObjC>pause
Press any key to continue . . .

I attached the script. It should be placed in a file in the current folder, for example, Then, in GNUStep shell you type:
You will get test.exe, to launch it:
$ test.exe

gcc `gnustep-config --objc-flags` -L /GNUstep/System/Library/Libraries test.m -o test.exe -lgnustep-base -lobjc

Open in new window

The file should be exactly as I posted: with #!/bin/bash in the first line.
Sorry, I will not make this thread as long as we used to have. My first comment is an answer. You are welcome to ask related questions about the bash script. We have on EE a special zone for it.

Just to confirm, that is in the right folder, re ls ?
