hi All,

When I want to change directory in Cygwin I simply copy the path from Windows's Command Prompt or Total Commander to Cygwin command line like (I do that when path is very long):

cd c:\users\oliver\temp

But it does not work since it can not recognise '\'. So I have to change '\' into '/' every time I wanna change directory in Cygwin. Is there a solution to this problem?

I tried something with pipelines but no success. I tried for example:

echo 'c:\users\oliver\temp' | sed 's_\\_/_g' | xargs cd

How to properly pipeline these commands?
