I love MSYS but I’m using Cygwin until I get a resolution to this problem: copying files with cp to/from a network share corrupts binaries. I believe this is a result of some automatic (and inappropriate) EOL conversions meant for text files. Does anyone know a way to turn this off? If it’s not a bug it’s a terrible feature. Here’s an older post from someone with the same problem:

I want cp to always work in binary mode, even for text files. Any ideas?
