Trying to find differences between local and remote file, I run into an issue:
diff.exe -cdb -x "CVS" -x ".svn" -I "\$Id.*\$" --strip-trailing-cr -- "C:\...\php-tools\GalleryClass.php" "\\REMOTE\C$\...\php-tools\GalleryClass.php"
diff: \REMOTE\C$\...\php-tools\GalleryClass.php: No such file or directory
Why it ate the leading backslash? Isn't it supposed to convert UNC path to
proper one? User's guide tell me this shouldn't be an issue, or so I read it
this way. Can anyone enlighten me on this matter, please?
'\' is a escape character for Cygwin just the way it is in UNIX/Linux.
You either need to escape it or, better yet, use forward slashes.
