That's bad news :-(
From the cygwin code (email@example.com), I assume that PeekNamedPipe
returns a negative value for lpTotalBytesAvail on EOF in win2k, and 0 in
I'll write a simple application to check that tomorrow.
BTW I looked at the putty code, and it uses a thread to read from stdin.
Well, I still think it should be possible to get notified of such an event.
feof() from mscvrt manages to do so...
