I'm running cygwin B20 on NT.
In perl, if I try to get the output from a shell command (ie. `date`)
the program blocks waiting for me to press ENTER. After I hit ENTER,
execution continues and I get the correct results. If I use the full
path (ie. `d:\<cygdir>\bin\date.exe`), the program does not block and I
get the correct results. But, using the full path appears to prevent me
from piping the output.
I get the same blocking behavior when trying to use the shell command in
make (ie. FOO = $(shell date)).
Can anyone help me with this? What causes the blocking before the path
