Re: Problem with select() on console

And now I have, and I see that fhandler_console does its own
line editing, so is perfectly aware of the input line state.
So blocking as soon as any key is typed seems a shortcoming
of cygwin, not windows?
I see there may be a difficulty with storing incomplete lines,
or with synchronizing processing of new console events seen
by different cygwin threads/processes, and it may be deemed
unworthwhile (especially as it doesn't seem to be a frequently
raised question), but to it seems doable.
