Cygwin paths in mingw64
Thu Nov 4 14:48:00 GMT 2010
I have installed cygwin together with mingw64 (4.5.1-1). Compiling in
principle works fine - however the programs are compiled for windows use,
not cygwin. One of the problems I experience is that one cannot use
cygwin-paths (e.g., /home/am/test.dat) within the programs, instead you have
to use the corresponding windows path (e.g., C:\Cygwin\home\am\test.dat).
However, the cygwin "make" sometimes uses cygwin paths or commands - so it
does not work well with the mingw64.
Is there an compiler switch to make mingw use the cygwin environment?
