[ Best place to hook path conversion in to Emacs under Windows ]
Emacs needs for functions like
find-file-at-point or (with the
helm-package) the function
helm-find-file its paths in the form
I wrote a converter-function which converts the former into the latter and I hooked it via
expand-file-name. This works reasonable well (e.g. in my initial use case to make
helm-locate cooperate with the git-bash
However in some cases it does not work, like in interactive use of
find-file-at-point. So my question is what is a more universal place to hook this converter in to make even interactive calls work properly?
The reason is that gitbash provides a similar
mount command as cygwin does and gitbash's paths are cygwin paths as well.
Just make sure the gitbash binaries are in emacs'
PATH environment variable.
