Pathnames with backslash
Wed May 3 07:04:00 GMT 2000
There was a change in the behavior of pathnames beginning
with the Apr-13 snapshot. Now, it seems that anything with
a backslash in it is considered a Win32 path:
$ cygpath -w '/cygdrive/c\cygnus'
$ cygpath -w '/cygdrive/c/cygnus'
Before Apr-13 these produced the same results.
I had been assuming that slash and backslash were interchangeable
in Cygwin. Is this an intentional/desirable change?
