We've got a directory which is mounted from a Samba server. The server
is sharing the directory as read-only. However under Cygwin
is returning 0, indicating the that file is writable. I assume this
is because Cygwin doesn't "know" that directory is read-only. Is there
any workaround (such as an option to "mount") that would tell cygwin
that the directory is read-only, or that all directories have 555 permission
instead of 755?
Hmm, if you were asking this of Linux, I'd say 'use a umask option in
the mount'... does Cygwin not have such a thing? (NOTE: That question is
directed at the other Cygwin folks; I looked and did not find one in the
'man' so I'm guessing it does not?)
All of my signatures are 100% original. Including this one.
