RE: pathing issues script failure

Non-Cygwin programs don't and never will understand Cygwin's POSIX 
paths.  Look to the FAQ entry below for the cygpath utility to convert
paths back and forth:

How do I convert between Windows and UNIX paths?

Subject: pathing issues script failure

I am writing a simple shell script and I am running into some roadblocks. I
am sure it is something I am doing, or the way I have configured the
system? Anyway, the problem is in the following script, I have to type in
/cygdrive/c, to reach the c drive.

But for some reason this script fails when it has to put the output away.
It switches the / unix style slashes back to windows? I am on win2000.
I am trying to get this working, does anyone know what is wrong, or what I
should change to get this rolling?


Here is the script.

echo $pwd " is pwd"


`cp -r ${classfiles}/com ${classfiles}/cvs_tmp`

cd ${classfiles}/cvs_tmp

args=`find . | grep java\$ | tr "\n" " "`

# run javadoc with the -d option, which will put the output in the
# directory this script was run from

echo /cygdrive/c/Program Files/jdk1.3.1_04/bin/javadoc -J-Xmx96m -d $pwd
es ....
/cygdrive/c/Program\ Files/jdk1.3.1_04/bin/javadoc -J-Xmx96m -d $pwd $args

# go back to where we started from
cd $pwd

find . | xargs chmod 777

### here is what happens when I run it, notice the Destination, it is now
spurcell@DSGSTL-PC-1523 /cygdrive/c
/cygdrive/c  is pwd
/cygdrive/c/Program Files/jdk1.3.1_04/bin/javadoc -J-Xmx96m -d /cygdrive/c
iles ....
javadoc: Destination directory not found \cygdrive\c
