Functions

cygwin::windows_path($cygwin_path)

Take a UNIX-style path used in Cygwin and convert it to a Windows path. For example:

  • cygwin::windows_path('/etc/motd') == 'C:\Cygwin64\etc\motd
  • cygwin::windows_path('/cygrive/c/ProgramData') == 'C:\ProgramData

Limitations

For obvious reasons, this module will only work on the Windows operating system.
