If this is mutt-specific I apologise in advance but I'm trying to figure
out why shell commands executed within mutt fail if the command includes
the '~' notation. For example:
!less /etc/passwd # works
!less ~/.muttrc # fails - no such file or directory
What's curious is that in the second example, mutt does seem to expand
'~' on its command-line (tab completion works), but the command itself
On the other hand, it does appear that explicit paths, relative paths
and symlinks work. Mostly.
!man -M d:/cygwin/home/george/man mymuttpage # no manual entry for
works only if the file is in the current path.
