Re: symbolic links on Paragon Linux File systems




 Hi Corinna,I 've set in the Control Panel,and  this reflects in bash.I still does work.
$ set | grep -i nativeCYGWIN=winsymlinks:native

$ ln -s /cygdrive/e/source sl

$ cat sl
!<symlink>▒▒/cygdrive/e/source

One can download a 10 days trial version at:
http://dl.paragon-software.com/demo/linuxwin_trial.msi or buy for about 19 €

  Hi all,
Thank you so much for the response,and nearby for the entire cygwin Project.(Best of both worlds)"The devil is in the detail"I admire cygwin so much, and I' am overwhelmed
that it can do the named pipes on paragon systemalready.I do not expect cygwin to master the symbolic links,it's too much.But if it were able master, I would sit on my chair breathless.
