Re: cygwin not showing afp files since update




More information.  It looks like Temporary files are created when
using Print To File from Adobe.
I went back and looked at old Postscript and AFP files created that
way and Cygwin cannot see them when listing the directory or perl
globbing.  When specifying the whole filename, ls does see the file.


Please email me if you have any help at franz D-O-T j D-O-T bowman A-T
rrd D-O-T com
