Hello everyone,

I'm using cygwin 1.7.2 on Windows 7, and I am unable to set the icrnl flag for /dev/ttyS2 as shown at the bottom of my message. The device attached to ttyS2 is a ARM development board which uses an ftdi chip for serial communication over USB.
These settings are not supported on the serial line. Basic I/O is
supported, but no cooked mode. Maybe we can derive the fhandler_serial
class from fhandler_termios instead of from fhandler_base at one point,
but none of the core developers really need and use serial I/O so our
incentive to change that is very low.

It was always my intention to do that when I first implemented fhandler_termios but testing the serial stuff is such a pain that I haven't gotten around to it in the last ten years. :-)

Thank you all kindly for the information.
I'm afraid I currently have the competences nor the time to write a patch to add this feature, and I understand this is not a high priority issue, so I'll manually work around this limitation for the cygwin build of my software for now.
