- Subject: Cygwin path conversion routines
It'd be great to have http://cygwin.com/cygwin-api/func-cygwin-conv-path.html
also document what happens if a path passed for conversion does already look
good. E.g. what Win-2-Posix conversion does with things like
"/cygdrive/c/cygwin" or just "/bin", and what is case-sensitivity
of the conversion routines... (E.g. "/cygdrive/C" and "/cygdrive/c"
appear to work equally well, but not "/Cygdrive/c".)
I know one can experiment to see the results, but the documented
behavior saves from guessing all the possible cases.
