Re: Does cygstart always expand arguments?

I think you're confused about what cygstart does. Cygstart is for
situations when, given a data file, you want to run the associated
application, like double-clicking it in explorer. While you can use it to
launch .exe's (by definition), it's probably not what you want in this
case. Try invoking gvim without cygstart, i.e., simply
$ gvim "file with spaces.txt"
Hope this helps,
cygstart documentation says you can supply arguments.
In general, one would expect to be able to have arguments
that have embedded spaces in them, yes?
