RE: Calling cygwin32_conv_to_full_win32_path from a MSVC app

  Thanks. You are correct. I am actually using the b20p1 distribution, but
due to build issues had to rename the dll to 19. I forgot about this when I
wrote the document.

  I was using cygpath for a while. Basically, we have an ENV var that
contains the path, and the scripts have to modify it. Then, when we invoke
the program (often by hand), it is directly, not via a path -- up shot is we
have no place to put the cygpath utility in. And the program we are running
is enough out of my control that I can't change the way it is run. So... I
need to convert the path while I'm running. :(
