I don't see the distinction between the redirection and the writing, and
also setting CYGWIN to nobinmode has no effect, so rule c does not seem to
If you set CYGWIN=nobinmode, I believe you will get newline
conversions done across pipes. In your example, you are only using
redirections. I would advise that you don't set it.
But also, specifying output as '.\sedtestout' did NOT solve the problem,
even with nobinmode in effect. So rule b is governing the input but is
not being applied on output.
Works for me - see attached session output.
You are right. I neglected to quote the .\sedtestout when I tried it.
So it all makes sense in terms of it following the rules. But I am
curious as to the reason for rule b. Most things in Cygwin seem to deal
interchangeably with windows and cygwin paths.
