I am using cygwin 1.7.2-2 and chmod fails for MS-DOS style path with the following error message.
eg: chmod 755 C:\\FileName
cygwin warning: MS-DOS style path detected: C:\FileName
Preferred POSIX equivalent is: /cygdrive/c/FileName
CYGWIN environment variable option "nodosfilewarning" turns off this warning.
Consult the user's guide for more details about POSIX paths:
This used to work in cygwin 1.5 .?
Is there any workaround available for this currently ?
Is this a bug in 1.7 which will be fixed in the upcoming versions ?
