- Subject: [PATCH] run > file for win32
I've just adapted some patches from Tak Ota to win32-nat.c.
Tak's patch didn't seem to be complete but the concept was so nice that
I took some time in the last few days and finished things.
The result is that you can use shell meta characters in gdb now, so
things like 'run < foo > bar' now work.
Since this is a departure from previous behavior, I turned this is off
by default. I added a 'set shell' command to control whether it is used
Hmm. I forgot to document this, didn't I? I'll submit that patch later.
Thanks you for your contribution, Tak! I've wanted this in the windows
version of gdb for a long time.

execed process is started.
(child_create_inferior): Allow invocation via shell so that command

a shell is used to start a process.
