cygwin_attach_handle_to_fd

extern "C" int cygwin_attach_handle_to_fd(name,  
 fd,  
 handle,  
 bin,  
 access); 
char *name;
int fd;
HANDLE handle;
int bin;
int access;
 

This function can be used to turn a Win32 "handle" into a posix-style file handle. fd may be -1 to make cygwin allocate a handle; the actual handle is returned in all cases.
