 From what I can see, Warren answered this question already.

I answered it because of this email. I do monitor the Cygwin tag in my feed reader, but I don't always see everything, so I appreciated the heads-up.

It's not really clear why you posted this here

To get eyeballs.

We don't want to be a list full of links to other forums.

Okay, to close the loop, the problem is that he was trying to run the native Win32 port of gnuplot under Cygwin, and was expecting that Cygwin symlinks and Cygwin paths were going to work somehow.

He was partially mislead by the fact that forward slashes work as well as backslashes, and so apparently thought that Cygwin somehow conferred knowledge of POSIX mechanisms on all Windows programs.

I directed him to the Cygwin port of gnuplot.

If anyone wants to upvote my answer, I'd appreciate it. :)
