- Subject: cygpath -a anomaly
With cygdrive prefix = /, from the root directory of a drive (e.g.,
/c = c:\ or /h = h:\), when asking for the absolute unix path with -au,
cygpath doubles the / between the drive letter and the first directory
of the path.
/h> echo Home | cygpath -au -f -
/h> echo Home | cygpath -aw -f -
This does not happen when one is not in the root directory of the drive.
/h> cd Home
/h/Home> echo cartoons | cygpath -au -f -
/h/Home> echo cartoons | cygpath -aw -f -
This does not happen when
/h> cd ..
/h> echo Home\\cartoons | cygpath -au -f -
/h> echo Home/cartoons | cygpath -aw -f -
This is with cygwin 1.5, everything up to date. Note that this also
happens on C:. Cygwin is in c:\\cygwin.
