RE: Cygwin is SLOW

Ok, maybe my English was bad enough to confuse you about my question.
I meant "why is there a so big difference between executing one script (say
the fast one) on a distant file and on a local file ?",
the path to chmod.exe being the same for both execution (am I wrong ?).
I quoted my results and drop other stuff.

>> I've tried both slow and fast perl scripts on my machine (AMD XP1700,

>> 143 chmods per sec
>> Could anyone explain the performance ratio for both scripts ???

I noticed you mentionned the influence of the PATH length upon the global
and I keep invastigating... (path convertion routine)
