#916 mkdir doesn´t handle / in relative paths

No

IMHO all mingw tools should handle the "/" path
seperators as well as the "\" ones to be compatible.
mkdir does support both when using absolute pathnames,
but only "\" in relative ones.
For example "mkdir .\test" succeeds while "mkdir
./test" gives me "syntax error".

    What environment are you using? When I use MSYS I get the
    following:

    boyde@OH6000GBOYDE ~
    $ mkdir ./testit

    boyde@OH6000GBOYDE ~
    $ rmdir ./testit

    boyde@OH6000GBOYDE ~
    $

    I´m using Windows XP.
    I´m not talking about MSYS here, I mean "plain" mingw.

    Then there is nothing we can do. If you are using the
    Windows cmd.exe or command.com then you will need to
    complain to its creator. If you want a shell that works,
    then install MSYS.
