I run win98 but have downloaded Cygwin to have a unix-like environment. I’ve read the help section at the cygwin page, but it doesn’t answer this question.
All the mount points are in the default binary mode. I want to change one of them to text mode. The help pages don’t say how to do this, except maybe to modify the system registry. I’d rather avoid doing that, as I suspect it may screw things up. It’s not that I’ve never modfied the registry, but it seems to me there should be a way of changing the mode without doing that.
I tried making a new mount point for the directory I’m using, but I must be doing something wrong, as I keep getting errors. I’m not very familiar with the mount command, so obviously there’s something I don’t understand about it.
Can anyone help?
