Cygwin from VBA
Invoking a BASH shell from VBA is not well-supported by Excel 2003.
The Run command is a bit limited. This VBA sample shows how to use
a .CMD file to set up parameters and call BASH.
If you have a web-server you can post data to it using VBA.
Excel VBA provides a Query object, for interrogating web-servers.
It doesn't allow for an HTTP POST command to sent with it.
This sample VBA shows how to make an HTTP POST command, collect a
ticket from the server in reply then wait on the server in a QueryObject.
Quoted-Printable and Base64 encoding
VBA doesn't provide a means of formatting strings to be suitable for a URL.
(This is the quoted printable format.)
VBA does support Base64 encoding, so you could send parameters as a
Base64 encoded string. Some VBA illustrates this.
