- Subject: Cat permissions
On other Linux builds, when you run Cat on a device (i.e. /dev/ttyS2) it
doesn't lock the device. Hence you can run Cat while you send messages to
that device. But with Cygwin, when I try to send stuff (e.g. echo something
> /dev/ttyS2), I get Permission Denied. Is there anyway to stop Cat from
locking the device or is this due to Cygwin's way of dealing with Windows
