I don't use Cygwin, but I guess that all Cygwin programs run their output through an ANSI escape interpreter, while the Win32 Perl does not.

This would explain why you see the ANSI escapes interpreted with Cygwin Perl but raw with the Win32 Perl.

You can "fix" this by loading the module Win32::Console::ANSI in your program, which interprets the output as ANSI and instructs the Windows console to render it properly. Of course that means you should only load that module on "real" Win32 Perl, not Cygwin Perl.

use if $^O eq 'MSWin32', 'Win32::Console::ANSI';

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
