Cygwin's writev() non-standard behavior
Wed Apr 23 14:53:00 GMT 2014
Using the link Eric Blake provided, I extract this from the POSIX
specification for writev:
"The iovcnt argument is valid if greater than 0 ..."
So, while the man page is a little off, the response seems
to be correct. You cold argue, and I might agree, that
POSIX should have allowed a 0 and said writev should just
return 0 in that case, but they didn't ...
