I'm really new to all this so if this is a dumb question, sorry.
I've tried to compile a command-line version of telnet that uses both
winsock and direct console I/O (_kbhit() & _getch()). It compiles with
the MS compiler, but does not play well in the cygwin env (escape
sequences, for example, don't get interpreted but rather passed through
as DOS "funny chars", so I guess the whole cygwin I/O magic is
being bypassed, which sort of makes sense. If I set CYGWIN=tty it
still doesn't behave totally correctly, but I haven't really worked this out
However, other things I do go belly up when I do this, so it isn't really
Anyway, I tried to recompile it with GCC. I defined Win32_Winsock and
linked with wsock32 (for sockets) and msvcrt (to get _kbhit and _getch).
It compiles, but gives a "Exception: STATUS_STACK_OVERFLOW" when
the dlls are loaded, before the program even runs. I gather, from reading
the archives, that this can happen if two dlls try to initialize the same items.
Is this my problem? If so, am I hosed? I tried some of the workarounds
in the digest, like using "select()" to code my own "kbhit()". But, try as
I might, I could not find a way to get a non-blocking read from STDIO to
Anyway, any enlightenment, including "give up, it's impossible" would be
