I'm attempting to script building mount points in order to handle spaces in
file names. So I do something like this:
homedir=`cygpath -w $USERPROFILE`
mount -buf "\"$homedir\" $HOME/myh
When I echo the mount command to the syntax looks correct.
However, when I actually run the mount command via the script I get the
message there are not enough parameters, like mount is not getting what it
Dealing with spaces is a huge pain... but this seems be one way to handle
them. Any idea why mount is unhappy when scripted as shown above?
