[PATCH v7 1/1] Cygwin: pty: add pseudo console support.
Wed Aug 21 15:41:00 GMT 2019
Hi Corinna, Mark and Thomas,
I worked on the following problem and implemented a solution.
It is not smart enough, however, it works anyway. This is
realized by hooking the WIN32 API calls which access console,
and switching I/O to pseudo console side if console access is
I will post it as v8 patch. I'm very happy if you will test.
