- Subject: System API problem
I am using cygwin 1.3.6 to compile the unix sources,
and use those executables on Win NT. I am getting
Strange error when running my application.
I am using system API inside my application to
execute commands. This is Sample Test program
int status=system("diff t1.tct t2.txt");
I compiled this in cygwin. I got test.exe. When i run
test.exe from msdos prompt, it is printing 127. That
means system api is returning error code as 127 it is
equivalent to (ERROR_PROC_NOT_FOUND).
I copied cygwin1.dll to c:\winnt\system32. system
API has been defined in this cygwin1.dll. when i run
this executable from dosprompt why it is not able to
locate procedure system eventhough cygwin1.dll in
path. Anybody faced such problem. i have tried with
different commands with in the system API. Same error
code 127. What is the problem. can i have any solution
for this problem.
