- Subject: cygpath -u doesn't seem to convert spaces properly
I am trying to use cygpath -u to convert my windows path to an unix path
in my shell script. However, it has problems with paths that has spaces
in it. For example, "cygpath -u c:\Program Files\Java" is converted to
/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Java, which doesn't work. Is there a flag
that I am missing?
I came up with the following, but it seems wrong.
$ cygpath -u "$(cygpath -m -s "c:\Program Files\Java")"
