It occured to me that, if you're using a charset which differs from your
current ANSI or OEM codepage, you might run into trouble with native
Windows tools. Therefore I also added a new -C/--codepage option to
cygpath to specify the codepage used to create a WIndows path from a
Cygwin path. For instance:
cygpath -C ANSI -aw .
creates the full path of the CWD in the current ANSI codepage. The
-C/--codepage option takes the following parameters:
- ANSI to specify the current ANSI codepage (for interaction with GUI tools).
- OEM to specify the current OEM codepage (for interaction with CLI tools).
- UTF8 just guess...
- n A decimal codepage number according to the following table:
Note that not all installations support all codepages.
I hope that helps. Please note that the -C option doesn't work yet for
the -p option. That's something I'll do after my vacation.
