Re: freopen fails w/o complaining

Hi Rolf,

Cygwin-xfree is the wrong list for this, where did you get the idea
that it was the right place?  I'll CC this to the right list, but note
that I myself am not subscribed there, so please CC me.

Your program exactly as above works fine here:

c:\tmp> gcc freopen.c
gcc freopen.c

c:\tmp> a.exe

c:\tmp> type of1
type of1

c:\tmp> uname -a
uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.0 caesar 1.3.22(0.78/3/2) 2003-03-18 09:20 i686 unknown unknown Cygwin


What did you do different?  What was your command-line?

Hope this helps, benny
