You could use "mount -p" (presuming your cygwin\bin is in your windows
path, as mine is).
If not, need to look in the registry:
No, you don't need to look in the registry. There's nothing there that
'mount' won't tell you. Forget about the registry. You'll be better
off, especially when Cygwin 1.7 is released.
I'm curious -- how does mount find or 'know' the cygdrive path
if it doesn't come from the registry.
For that matter, how would a windows .bat file find the
'mount.exe' binary if the .bat file doesn't know 'cygdrive path'?
