Thanks for the reply. But I don't understand why "cygwin paths" are an 
issue - I'm using MinGW (http://www.mingw.org), which doesn't use cygwin, 
and I don't have cygwin installed on this box.

It's not a big deal, since it looks like I can bypass gccxml.exe and call 
gccxml_cc1plus.exe directly. I just wondered.

Thanks again, both for the reply and for a great tool.
