I have recently started working with the b19.1 version of the cygwin32 tools,
and I am very much interested in using the symbolic link capability. I have
found a problem using symbolic links across filesystems.
Here is the setup:
ln -s d:/da/db c:/ca/cb
If you are in /ca, you can cd to cb without problems.
You can't, however, cd to /ca/cb. The problem is realpath shows the following
path for /ca/cb: /ca/d:/da/db
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
