No Earnie. It wasn't about programming. Read and try to comprehend.
cygwin seems to have a missing api in it or one it should have is missing.
The cygwin.dll or possibly another cygwin dll shuffles i/o betwwen cygwin programs and MSWindows is not open to linkage (or is it) by assembly language programs. This should be a realitive easy thing to do. There are entry points in the dll'S for i/o, which is called from the assembled c programs. It should be even easier for an assembly program to directly link to those dlls. If it can not then it is missing. If it is not missing, where is it and where is it documented? This would be to cygwin and the cygwin community as a whole good.
p.s. If you would like to learn about programming, it is off topic for this list, but I'd be happy to help you if you write directly.
