RE: EXT: Re: cygpath -u converts quoted UNC paths to local




Not completely the shell.

From a Windows command prompt:
c:\Apps\cygwin64\bin\cygpath.exe  -u \\123.456.789.321\wwwroot\ccenter\bin\online.sh
//123.456.789.321/wwwroot/ccenter/bin/online.sh

c:\Apps\cygwin64\bin\cygpath.exe  -u "\\123.456.789.321\wwwroot\ccenter\bin\online.sh"
/cygdrive/c/123.456.789.321/wwwroot/ccenter/bin/online.sh

c:\Apps\cygwin64\bin\cygpath.exe  -u "\\\123.456.789.321\wwwroot\ccenter\bin\online.sh"
//123.456.789.321/wwwroot/ccenter/bin/online.sh

c:\Apps\cygwin64\bin\cygpath.exe  -u "\\\\123.456.789.321\wwwroot\ccenter\bin\online.sh"
//123.456.789.321/wwwroot/ccenter/bin/online.sh

Looks like cygpath is doing something different when the argument is enclosed in quotes (same behavior if single-quote ' is used).
