As you see all mounting points are set into binary mode, but I notice
that cygwin still write files in text mode and this is realy anoying.
Right now I use Windows 2000 Server, I notice this problem with older
cygwin under win98, but it disapears after some time (I guess
upgrading helps, right now I use this same version which was working
correctly under win98)
Right now I'm trying to upgrade and I will see that problem will
exists or not ...
BTW: In registry flags are:
for /cygdrive is 0x22
fo other mount points is 0x02
I check with registry in w98 and is the same ...
BTW2: Why I can't add mount point to system-wide registry location?
When I trying to use arguments -bs it displays help.
BTW3: It's normal that when I'm mounting in place of win32patch
Instead of backslashes I need to use shlashes?
ie. C:\WINDOWS I need write as C:/WINDOWS to make mount command
PS: Please add to CC my e-mail, because I'm not subscribet into this
Windows: Just another pain in the glass.
