Cygwin git compatibility with VS Code (or other Windows programs) using cygpath

Cygwin Git + VS Code compatibility

Thanks and credit to mattn and ferreus on GitHub.

Check out wslpath if you're using the Windows Subsystem for Linux.

# wrapper to convert linux paths to windows
# so vscode will work as a git editor with cygwin
# editor="/home/this/ -w" in .gitconfig
# extract last argument (the file path)
for last; do true; done
# get all the initial command arguments
# launch editor with windows path
code $all `cygpath -w $last`
