problem using stdin on windows with cygwin
- These examples are using windows vim 7.3 (2010 Aug 15) on windows XP
from a recent cygwin bash
$ vim - <<< q ## This is OK. vim starts up, with "q" in the
$ vim -e -s <<< q ## This hangs, expect it to simply exit
In the first example, vim can read stdin OK. But not in the second. The
second works ok on linux.
Since I wanted to run ":helptags" from a script the following workaround
$ vim -e -s -c "helptags $(cygpath xxx)" -c q
I wonder if this is a vim or a cygwin issue. I'm not sure how to try
this from windows' cmd prompt.
