- Subject: "tee" is coredumping
I've got the latest cygwin 1.3.20-1, cygutils 1.1.3-1.
The "tee" command is core dumping on me, but
only with a particular set of circumstances. I use
it as follows:
make -f client.mak 2>&1 | tee client.out
I realize this is not telling you a whole lot because
it depends on what all happens in client.mak. I don't
get a core dump if I just do "ls 2>&1 | tee client.out".
Here is the short contents of client.mak:
CC = gfilt
$(warning Hostname is $(HOSTNAME))
$(warning Disabling Matlab engine code.)
NOML = -DNOML
LIBS = -L /opt/matlab13/extern/lib/sol2 -leng -lmx
client: client.cpp client.hpp client.mak
$(CC) $(NOML) -O -o client \
The key in this file that seems to cause the crash is
using CC=gfilt instead of g++. "gfilt" is a perl script
(or rather, a shell script that invokes perl) to decrypt
the very confusing messages from the C++ standard
I realize it's not realistic to ask "What's wrong", but
perhaps a few strategies to isolate the problem? I
am no perl guy (I've used twice, like an overpowered
sed script). The perl version is 5.6.1-2, with gnu license.
But perl is probably not the problem, since it's tee that's
Thanks in advance.
