after further study, I noticed that using "c:/directory" works fine with
my tests except tar.exe.
all of the following commands works
cp.exe c:/temp/tuner.h c:/test/
mv.exe c:/temp/tt.h c:/test
tar test.tar c:/temp/*
tar cvf c:/test.tar c:/temp/*
tar xvf c:/test.tar
is tar.exe the only exception that won't work correctly when using "c:/"?
from my test, I didn't see any other commands has the problem in
I understand people here may like /cygdrive/c more than c:/. Just want
to know if it is an accident feature that all other commands can work
with c:/ except tar?
Tom, have you ever read the man page for 'tar'? Now might be a good time.
Pay special attention to the "--force-local" flag.
This is not a Cygwin issue. Further discussion if it in this thread is
therefore off-topic for this list. You'll have to find another mailing list
to follow-up with if you want to talk about this more.
