[Mingw-msys] Somebody can say which to me is the error?




Hello,

After reading some documentation about PATHS, http://www.mingw.org/wiki/Posix_path_conversion

I have some problems doing a trivial "ls" with windows paths (no spaces).

I have done 5 tests:

1) Windows path one folder - It works!

$ ls -la c:\windows

ls: c:windows/CSC:

total 23080

drwxr-xr-x 64 k Administradores 28672 Jan 18 19:48 .

drwxsr-xr-x 22 k Administradores 16384 Feb 6 16:38 ..

-rw-r--r-- 1 k Administradores 5242934 Nov 5 08:30 BGInfo.bmp

...



2) POSIX path one folder -> It works!

$ ls -la c:/windows

ls: c:/windows/CSC:

total 23080

drwxr-xr-x 64 k Administradores 28672 Jan 18 19:48 .

drwxr-xr-x 22 k Administradores 16384 Feb 6 16:38 ..

-rw-r--r-- 1 k Administradores 5242934 Nov 5 08:30 BGInfo.bmp

...


3) POSIX path subfolder (ADAM) -> It works!

$ ls -la c:/windows/ADAM

total 3384

drwxr-xr-x 37 k Administradores 4096 Mar 20 2012 .

drwxr-xr-x 64 k Administradores 28672 Jan 18 19:48 ..

-rwxr-xr-x 2 k Administradores 253952 Nov 20 2010 ADSchemaAnalyzer.exe

...


4) Windows path subfolder (ADAM) -> It doesn't works!

$ ls -la c:\windows\ADAM

ls: c:windowsADAM: No such file or directory


5) Windows path subfolder (ADAM) QUOTED -> It works!

$ ls -la "c:\windows\ADAM"

total 3384

drwxr-xr-x 37 k Administradores 4096 Mar 20 2012 .

drwxr-xr-x 64 k Administradores 28672 Jan 18 19:48 ..

-rwxr-xr-x 2 k Administradores 253952 Nov 20 2010 ADSchemaAnalyzer.exe


My question is: Why test 4 doesn't work?

If there is only one folder, it works (test 1).

I don't understand why adding subfolders fails.

Is there any reason?

I'm doing something wrong?


Why test 5 works?

I think that quoting here is not necessary.

But In fact I don't mind if works with quotes. My real question is test 4.


Thanks a lot.
