But, if I write it like that, this never will work under Ubuntu, does it? Or
is it possible with some "mount" magic to void the prefix "/cydgrive/c"?
My goal is to have just 1 alias that would work both under Win32 (Cygwin) and
Ubuntu, having the files located in the same place (relative to my home dir).
I also tried you suggestion for another command, which was:
perl C:/home/sva/src/csv2ledger/CSV2Ledger.pl -f $FileMatches -i $tmpfile.clean
This works fine under Cygwin right now.
Rewritten with POSIX paths:
perl /cygdrive/c/home/sva/src/csv2ledger/CSV2Ledger.pl -f $FileMatches -i $tmpfile.clean
It does not work anymore...
