Re: ls.exe shows windows system hidden files


I suppose that would be an adequate basis for constructing something with the effect I imagined.

Realistically, if I cared about being able to do this, I'd probably wrap the Windows "attrib" command in a script that would allow it to accept Cygwin's POSIX paths and to allow it to act like "find" with a hypothetical "--attrib" option. In other words, to list only those files bearing a particular attribute pattern.

Fortunately, I've never had to care about this and the Windows "attrib" command is barely in my working vocabulary, which is no doubt why I didn't think of it instead of suggesting a new tool.

What's wrong with an 'attrib' wrapper using cygpath?  That's not much
work at all.
