Path trouble w. Perl using B20.1
X-Mailer: VM 6.74 under Emacs 19.34.6

Hi there,

I am trying to start using the CygWin user tools as my new command
line environment on Windows NT 4.0, but I am having severe trouble
getting simple access to my perl scripts. They all work find when I
run them from the C: drive, which is mounted on /, but whenever I try
to run them from any other drives (mounted to /d, /e etc) it
fails. See below for a simple test case and system data.

Any advice?

klillevold:~> perltest
klillevold:~> cd /d
klillevold:/d> perltest
Can't open perl script "/kol/perl/perltest": No such file or directory
klillevold:~> ls -l /kol/perl/perltest
-rwxr-xr-x   1 0        everyone       36 Dec  1 11:15 /kol/perl/perltest*
klillevold:/d> perl /kol/perl/perltest
Can't open perl script "/kol/perl/perltest": No such file or directory
klillevold:/d> perl c:/kol/perl/perltest

/usr/bin/perl.exe is a symbolic link to /Misc/perl/bin/perl.exe

klillevold:~> env 

print "OK!\n";
