Re: Open URLs with # using cygstart.exe
Hi Dima, Csaba,
Thanks for replies. I am running 64-bit Windows 7, Cygwin 1.7.11 (2012-02-24).
The default browser is Chrome, but I've tried with Firefox and InternetExplorer -
same result whenever I'm using single quotes or not with each of the three
browsers. Remote URLs indeed work fine. With the local URL address line of the
browser contains truncated URL without '#...' part so maybe cygstart parses
its argument differently dependently whether it starts with file:// or http://?
