Under Windows the result of:

C:/> perl | perl

differs from

C:/> perl > f C:/> perl < f

The specific example is:

D:\tmp3>perl COM1 < dmp4.tests | perl : test selftest randunit : test selftest ok # includes all except errors and warnings : test selftest # includes all except errors : test selftest all # includes also errors and warnings : mc creation : mc attr : mc resdata : mc container : mc clone 1 (11.1111111111111%) TENTATIVE D:\tmp3>perl COM1 < dmp4.tests > dmp4.results D:\tmp3>perl < dmp4.results PASSED: test selftest randunit PASSED: test selftest ok # includes all except errors and warnings TENTATIVE: test selftest # includes all except errors FAILED: test selftest all # includes also errors and warnings PASSED: mc creation FAILED: mc attr PASSED: mc resdata PASSED: mc container PASSED: mc clone TESTS: 9 PASSED 6 (66%) TENTATIVE 1 (11%) FAILED 2 (22%) D:\tmp3>

I can't explain it. The only difference I see is when I print out multiple local my variables in one print, the characters get corrupted somehow.

Has anyone seen something like this before?

Any ideas about how to proceed with debugging, I'm stumped.

Could it have something to do with cygwin perl? I have both cygwin perl and activestate installed on my machine.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
