Re: "Broken pipe" warning from bash.

: Following little (bash) shell-script many times causes a "Broken pipe"
: (SIGPIPE) warning to be emitted by bash. Is this expected behaviour?

Maybe I should have been clearer... <Aargh/>...

[Explanation I was writing snipped.]

...It's in the bash FAQ... <URL:>
section E2.

According to that, defining ``DONT_REPORT_SIGPIPE'' in ``config-top.h''
will enable building a version which does not show the behaviour.

Is this flag set on the various distro's?

Should it be set on cygwin? (If only to prevent more stupid questions
like mine...)

Sorry about the noise, ppl.
