Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49651] New: Interix (Windows 7 SUA subsystem) support in ant script
Date Mon, 26 Jul 2010 21:20:47 GMT

           Summary: Interix (Windows 7 SUA subsystem) support in ant
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.8.1
          Platform: PC
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Wrapper scripts

The current ant script does not recognize the Microsoft Subsystem for Unix-like
Applications (SUA), a Unix on Windows environment under which uname reports
"Interix".  That environment is very similar to cygwin with the exception that
"cygpath" is replaced by "unixpath2win" as the utility for transforming
filenames or colon-separated path variables to MS Windows format. (unixpath2win
does gratuitously convert "*" to "?".)

Our company policy makes it rather difficult for me and fellow employees to
contribute actual code for such an enhancement, but I would be happy to review
or test any upgrades along those lines.  In the meantime, I can continue to
support the upgrade locally.
