This file is useful with gcc and other programs run from make, when these tools come from Cygwin and the version of Vim used is the win32 native version.
In other environments, Vim default settings are perfect.

Reason: the filenames (for whom gcc reports errors) are expressed in the UNIX form, and Vim is unable to open them from the quickfix window. Hence the filtering used to replace '/' (root) by {cygpath -m /}.
Since the version 20040616, this plugin is also able to follow symbolic links -- defined from cygwin.

At this time, it has only be tested with gcc, but I guess it should be useful with other compilers built for cygwin.

Improvments are certainly posible. Any feedback is welcomed!
install details
Copy the file into one of your {rtp}/compiler/ directory, and be sure that $TERM or $OSTYPE value 'cygwin' before doing a:
  :compiler cygwin
and then
  :make target

The version 20040616 requires Perl (tested OK with cygwin's one) and cygUtils (more precisely: realpath).
