No results.  I execute the program in a command window, current
directory at c:\cygwin\bin, simply typed in the comand as above --
tried multiple times both with and without the redirection -- press
enter, and the screen blinks and the command line returns. No output
is displayed, or in the case of the redirection, no output is written
to the output file.
