Ok, I have emailed the file as attachment directly. I did not know before about the mount "mode". The following is what I can get from "mount" as soon as I start cygwin:
C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type user (textmode)
C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type user (textmode)
C:\cygwin on / type user (textmode)
c: on /cygdrive/c type user (textmode,noumount)
e: on /cygdrive/e type user (textmode,noumount)
So my next question is the following: if binmode is possible, how can I make the cygwin start script (C:\cygwin\cygwin.bat) mount it's standard mounts in binmode? And even if I wanted to, would that be a good thing?
Here is cygwin.bat:
bash --login -i
Many thanks for your help.
