TMP in Cygwin is "user-crafted"? TMP in Windows? TMP in your script?
TMP in Windows.
Also, this approach would defeat the intended purpose of the
redefinition of TMP (avoiding permissions screwup). Or am I missing
If you're the only Cygwin user on your machine, this is a reasonable
way. Otherwise not.
You mean, the permissions problem only surfaces on machines, where
multiple users use the same cygwin install? Ok, I'll consider that.
For now I resorted to copying the TEMP value to WINDOWS_TEMP on the
native Windows side already, and then refer to that backup from the
script in question.
