RE: [Mingw-msys] RE: Bug with backticks behaviour in mSYS?

Msys does not support symlinks unfortunatly.
The code for that was removed because mingw does not understand cygwin
symlinks. There is one workaround though, google junction.exe from
sysinternals and put it somewhere in your PATH (the msys bin folder is
ok) now to make a link to say a folder do this from the msys shell
junction <path to put the link to your folder> <path to your folder>
(you can use /mingw/something if in msys) else you need the full
windows path like C:\mingw\something.

so why does this work when cygwin symlinks dont ? mingw is a windows
compiler and understands NT junctions (existed since win2k if i
remember correctly) but not cygwin symlinks (which emulates linux
symlinks).

Hope this helps
