Sorry, I ignored the list addresses, I always try to remove peoples'

I don't use Outlook so I can't speak for this but I've heard
others on the list mention it.

Sorta nice, but still does not let me munge the email address, infact it gets all confused on lists. It put cygwin-owner atsign for this email, and it is failing to strip sigs after sig dashes. But it quotes mail nicely.

Sounds like it could use a patch or two. ;-) Maybe someone else on this list that uses it would have some ideas.

Hmm, could I get a primmer on where to look to understand more.
I.E. which sources/functions.
546&conten t-type=text/x-cvsweb-markup&cvsroot=src>

Here is the question I am going with: If the path starts with \\?\
don't strip the trailing slash, can this be cost effective or only
cost more in that case?
The real question that comes into play this path conversion
code is whether or not any additional check/code is cost

Perfectly understood.

This code is called constantly so a change that
adds to the overhead of this call is going to be magnified
many times, which is obviously a negative.

Has anyone done a branching analysis on it? I have not finished groking it all yet, but there is Allways Room for Improvement(TM).

I can't say. I haven't. Certainly if there's a way to make this faster, easier, and better without any sacrifices, I think that would be generally welcome. :-)
