Re: ls.exe shows windows system hidden files
I suppose that would be an adequate basis for constructing something with
the effect I imagined.
Realistically, if I cared about being able to do this, I'd probably wrap
the Windows "attrib" command in a script that would allow it to accept
Cygwin's POSIX paths and to allow it to act like "find" with a hypothetical
"--attrib" option. In other words, to list only those files bearing a
particular attribute pattern.
Fortunately, I've never had to care about this and the Windows "attrib"
command is barely in my working vocabulary, which is no doubt why I didn't
think of it instead of suggesting a new tool.

What's wrong with an 'attrib' wrapper using cygpath? That's not much
work at all.
