According to Mathijs Romans on 2/29/2008 6:42 AM:
| Mathijs@chef /
| $ diff /Cygwin.bat Thumbs.db
| /usr/bin/diff: /Cygwin.bat: No such file or directory
| Notice the slash before Cygwin.bat. Is this normal?? Other commands
| such as 'ls' work fine.
The slash before the file name in the error message is normal - diff uses
the file name you typed in generating its message. However, why the diff
was unable to find the file by its absolute name is not normal - I
couldn't reproduce it, so there is something different about your / than
there is for mine. Running strace may shed some light on this, as well.
