Re: [cdt-dev] cygpath not found

I have raised bug on this. The CDT can not depend on cygwin being installed in a Windows environment. The MSYS/MinGW tools deal fine with Windows paths.

It wouldn't be so bad if a warning didn't get planted in the Problems view. I'll do some further testing to see if anything else is broken.

I don't completely understand the question.
Neither cygpath nor any other external tool/toolkit-specific stuff is
used by the managed build system.
On the other hand, any MBS tool-chain definitions are free to use any
tool-chain specific tools, utilities, etc. to obtain any info they
tool-chain specific info.
The Gnu tool-chain definition actually does that (see
org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.gnu.ui plug-in).
E.g. org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.core.IBuildPathResolver
implementation that the gnu tool-chain definition provides
(org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.gnu.cygwin.CygwinPathResolver) actually
uses cygpath to convert cygwin-style paths to windows-style paths.

Please correct me if I misunderstood your question.

I don't really like to blow the release date, but why is managed make
project relying on cygpath? What, if someone does not have cygwin
because neither MinGW nor any other toolkit except cygwin rely on this?
