o The FAQ and User's Guide seem to refer to B20 -- are there equivalent docs
for the new 1.1.0, or does everything in the older docs still apply?
o What's the deal with these new "/cygdrive" path prefixes?
| bash-2.03$ type bash
| bash is /cygdrive/h/cygnus/bin/bash
They don't seem to appear in my mount table:
| bash-2.03$ mount
| Device Directory Type Flags
| \\.\tape0: /dev/st0 user textmode
| \\.\tape1: /dev/st1 user textmode
| \\.\a: /dev/fd0 user textmode
| \\.\b: /dev/fd1 user textmode
| D: / user textmode
o We have a Makefile that needs to pass the current directory to a (non-cygwin)
program. If we use $PWD, we get the /cygdrive style path, which the program
doesn't grok. Do I have use conditionally (our Makefile also runs on Linux)
call cygpath to convert to Windows style paths in all places we invoke this
o Is there a way to tell cygwin to always use Windows style paths (with drive
letters) rather than the "unix" paths that are only understood by other
o I've seen people allude to a CYGWIN variable -- where is this documented?
