Re: how to get the windows PATH env in cygwin

Just to clarify since there seems to be a little confusion concerning what the OP needs. Gary's suggestion will convert the value of the PATH environment variable as the shell used to run cygpath sees it to a value which is acceptable by Windows-native applications. That means that you'll likely have the additional elements as prepended by /etc/profile in the result.

If you want to see the Windows PATH setting unmolested by Cygwin, you will either need to strip out the additions set by /etc/profile or avoid running under an environment modified by /etc/profile.
Jeeze, not need to go through all that. Simply start the Windows command prompt and type in echo %PATH%.
