```Hi,

Some of the commands we "launch" from a cygwin bash shell only understand
the Dos path convention since they are native window's executables.  Is
there a "conversion" command I can call to go from a Unix path to a Dos path
and back?

Example:
Cygwin path: /cygdrive/c/'Program Files'/Prod123/something.dat

After converting it becomes -> Dos path: c:\Program
Files\Prod123\something.dat

Thanks,
Rick
