cwrsyc: minimal test fails on change_dir


Hello

This is cross-posted from the cwrsync forum. cwrsync is an integrated package of minimal Cygwin with rsync.

A minimal test case, based on the as-distrubuted cwrsync.cmd, fails with "rsync: change_dir ... No such file or directory (2)". The listed directory looks strange.

The sample cwrsync.cmd was modified only by adding this line at the end:
Code:
rsync --verbose “/cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32/drivers/etc”  CW8vWXP@10.0.2.2::CW8vWXP
The full error message (my bolding) is:
Code:
rsync: change_dir "/cygdrive/c/Program Files/cwRsync/ô/cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32/drivers" failed: No such file or directory (2)
I don't know how the path should look but was not expecting it to be prefixed with %CWRSYNCHOME% (C:\Program Files\cwRsync, translated by Cygwin) and a hatted o.

Client-server transactions are working because a cwrsync.cmd with rsync -r 10.0.2.2:: gives the expected output:
Code:
CW8vWXP CW8vWXP (Charles workstation's virtual WXP)
ssh is not used. cwrsync prompts for a password which is accepted.

Versions:
  • Windows: XP Pro SP2 running in a VirtualBox 3.2.8 virtual machine running new installation of cwrsync 4.0.5
  • Server: Slackware64 13.1 running rsync 3.0.7
Best

Charles

The problem was the wrong quotes, “ instead of "
