I'm distributing a "dev-pack" (psycle project at
sourceforge) which contains msys with a modified
"startup script" that automatically produce a
/etc/fstab file with the /home mount point set with the
parent dir of the USERPROFILE env var.
the problem is that the parent dir the of USERPROFILE
is usually something like "x:/documents and settings",
i.e. the path contains spaces.
i've tried quoting with " or ', but it seems the syntax
Alternatively, is there a way with cmd.exe to obtain
the "8.3" alias for a path?
