For the specific case C:\Temp, I found this:
cygpath -ua 'C:\Temp'
cygpath -ua /cygdrive/c/Temp
cygpath -ua '\Temp'
cygpath -ua '/Temp'
Now Cygwin is open source, so you, too, could grab the code in cygpath and
call it as a subroutine, maybe, to try to canonicalize a wider range of
Note the interesting difference between the \Temp and /Temp cases. cygpath
is processing \Temp as a Windows-like thing, and thus interpreting it
according the the Windows root for the current drive. However, it processes
/Temp and a Posix-like path, which will be in term of the _Cygwin_ root,
generally the CYgwin install directory.
Still, if you did this canonicalization first, maybe you would get more what
you're looking for? I'm not sure it would be a good idea to insert this
generally into the Cygwin library stack. Others more familiar with the fine
details can probably elaborate why.
