- Subject: MSYS path behavior in Cygwin
I used to use MSYS simply as my general purpose shell (infinitely better than
cmd!) However, I've started using Cygwin since I really just use it as a shell
rather than a build environment, and Cygwin has the full selection of tools.
That said, one thing I loved about msys is the ability to pass a *nix style path
and have it automatically converted, i.e. I could start gvim like so:
and the path would convert to 'C:\src\myfile.cs' for the windows exe.
I know cygwin has the cygpath util to deal with this... But is there any way to
get the MSYS automatic path conversion in Cygwin? I know Cygwin has 'MinGW
runtime' library packages - Is there some way to use those libs in Cygwin to get
the desired effect? Any insight?
