Re: Bridge between windows and Cygwin to use awk on windows files

In most cases, you can directly refer to the Windows filename natively:
You can already access all of your windows files with cygwin:
- from within bash/tcsh/sh:
$ cat /cygdrive/c/Temp/blah.txt | awk -e '...'
$ awk -e "..." c:/Temp/blah.txt
No need for a "bridge". Remember to use forward slashes. The cygpath
thing is useful in scripts (or if you want to normalize slashes), but is
tedious to type at the command line each time.
The only exception that I know of is "tar", which treats (for its output
file argument) "c:/path" as "/path on hostname c"..
