Re: cygpath -w converts relative paths to absolute windows paths

How is the special meaning of ".." so much different in Windows than in
Cygwin/Linux/POSIX that it could not be mapped?
Greetings, Roger Qiu!
I've found that `cygpath --windows '../` will give back an absolute windows path.
".." is a special path, that can't be safely converted.
Things like dir .., cd .., type ..\sub\file all work comparably.
