- Subject: The incredible shrinking PATH
We're getting a problem where a native windows console program invoked from
an interactive Cygwin bash shell seems to be getting a truncated PATH
environment variable. The windows program in question is Boost Jam and for
some people it can't find a compiler that's definitely in a directory in
their path. If they re-arrange the directories in their path to make the
relevant one appear early on things start working. And the same command
invoked from cmd works without having to re-arrange the path.
Has anyone come across anything like this before? I had a quick search of
the archives but nothing turned up.
