Mon Oct 27 06:20:00 GMT 1997
I suggest looking at Pete Jordan's debash which you can find at
http://www.horus.cix.co.uk/downloads.html . I have been using version
4.6 of vim on win32 with debash and have little problem finding path
The problems with path names using debash will come when you try to
reference a cygwin path from within vim with one of the file operation
