RE: cygpath




Thanks for the explanation.  Just odd how cmd.exe only sometimes misbehaves.

%%%cygpath -w /usr/a/b/*
C:\cygwin\usr\a\b\

%%%cygpath -w /a/b/*
C:\cygwin\a\b\

%%%cygpath -w /a/b/c/*
C:\cygwin\a\b\c\

My results are from running a "normal" bash-under-mintty setup.

If I go to a cmd.exe window and start bash,

Z:\>cygpath -w "/usr/bin/*"
C:\cygwin\bin\?

This is consistent with the explanation that an asterisk ends up having a private-use character substituted in for it.
