Hi All,

I've recently installed latest x-Cygwin on different PCs and suddenly discovered strange reaction on 'system' function inside Perl/Tk apps. Naturally, console applications running well with this function. Below you can see my snippet code and stuff it prints.

FELIX-XP-~> cat

#!/usr/bin/perl # Code automatically generated by VPTK_W use strict; use Tk; use Tk::Button; my $mw=MainWindow->new(-title=>'Bug demo'); my $w_Button_001 = $mw -> Button ( -background=>'green4', -foreground=>'Yellow', -text=>'Exit', -command=>sub {exit} ) -> pack() +; my $w_Button_002 = $mw -> Button ( -background, 'Yellow', -foreground, 'Black', -command, sub{system('echo Hello'=>'')}, -text, 'Magic 0' ) -> pack(); my $w_Button_003 = $mw -> Button ( -background, 'Red', -foreground, 'Yellow', -command, sub{system('xterm'=>'')}, -text, 'Magic 1' ) -> pack(); MainLoop;

#===vptk end===< DO NOT CODE ABOVE THIS LINE >=== FELIX-XP-~> C:\cygwin\bin\perl.exe (3064): *** unable to remap C:\cygwin\bin\cygz.dll to same address as parent(0xE00000) != 0xE10000 9 [main] perl 2168 fork_parent: child 3064 died waiting for dll loading Background Error: panic: MUTEX_LOCK (45) [op.c:354] at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8/cygwin/ line 406. panic: MUTEX_LOCK (45) [op.c:354].

Any help/suggestion will be highly appreciated,

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.
