Possible Regression in cygpath
Thu Aug 26 14:17:00 GMT 2010
Prior to the latest release of cygwin (which translates to cygpath
version 1.6.1), the following command worked fine:
cygpath -d .
With the latest release of cygwin (which translates to cygpath version
1.8 I believe; the build was ~ August 10th), the same command
"cygpath: cannot create short name of ."
However, if I execute:
cygpath -d --absolute .
it works as expected. It appears that in the latest release, cygpath
either requires that "--absolute" flag, or requires the path that is
passed in to be absolute. Was this an intentional change?
