Joe on cygwin: file name restriction?

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    This weekend I installed joe for cygwin using the cygwin install routine.

    Joe works fine, but I have noticed what I think is a file name length restriction.

    I am able to edit a file with the name


    but I get the indication that a new file is being created when I try to edit an existing file with the name


    Is this a configuration issue or an OS based limitation?

      No, no file name restriction.

      Better glasses might help.
      An small L was read as a 1.
