Re: Strange cygpath behavior.

Greetings, Peter Rosin!

No, I did mean what I wrote.

How come? Switch only defining the result, not the source data.

>> [\\DAEMON1\anrdaemon]$cygpath -lm \\DAEMON1\anrdaemon\.profile
>> //DAEMON1/anrdaemon/.profile

You think wrong.

>> [\\DAEMON1\anrdaemon]$cygpath -u "\\DAEMON1\anrdaemon\.profile"
>> /DAEMON1/anrdaemon/.profile

> I think you mean cygpath -u "\\\\DAEMON1\\anrdaemon\\.profile"

Again, no.

>> [\\DAEMON1\anrdaemon]$cygpath -m "\\DAEMON1\anrdaemon\.profile"
>> ///DAEMON1/anrdaemon/.profile

> I think you mean cygpath -m "//DAEMON1/anrdaemon/.profile"

No, yet again.

>> [\\DAEMON1\anrdaemon]$cygpath -lm "\\DAEMON1\anrdaemon\.profile"
>> ///DAEMON1/anrdaemon/.profile

> I think you mean cygpath -lm "//DAEMON1/anrdaemon/.profile"

No, for the last time.

Glad you quoted it, strange that you didn't read it.
