after further study, I noticed that using "c:/directory" works fine with my
tests except tar.exe.
all of the following commands works
cp.exe c:/temp/tuner.h c:/test/
mv.exe c:/temp/tt.h c:/test
tar test.tar c:/temp/*
tar cvf c:/test.tar c:/temp/*
tar xvf c:/test.tar
is tar.exe the only exception that won't work correctly when using "c:/"?
from my test, I didn't see any other commands has the problem in handling
I understand people here may like /cygdrive/c more than c:/. Just want to
know if it is an accident feature that all other commands can work with c:/
