in reply to Check for root under Cygwin

That check, however, is not working under Cygwin as expected

Root does not exist on Cygwin - so, something like:

skip "cannot run under root", 2 if(!$< || $^O =~ /cygwin/i);
Cheers,
Rob

    Yes, skipping those tests would work for sure.
    But is there an option to run tests, when possible? (i.e. determine if current cygwin user acts like root under *nix)

      You mean that the tests *should* be run when running as administrator ? Perhaps Win32::IsAdminUser() is useful for determining that.
      See the Win32 module's documentation.

      Consider posting to the Cygwin mailing list (if you fail to receive a satisfactory answer here).

        No, test should be run when *not* running as administrator.
        Yes, Win32::IsAdminUser() is working right, seems it's the solution.
        I did not realize that this module available for Cygwin too.
        Thanks!
