I have a program I've writ which takes input and types on to other
terminals; however, it seems that under Cygwin, TIOCSTI on a file
descriptor doesn't work according to plan -- I get "Invalid argument",
but I don't know why.
Did a read on ioctl, and saw something about POSIX STREAMS. I thought
that paradigm had died a mean nasty ugly death YEARS back, but I'm
hoping that's entirely beside the point.
Does there exist a way to successfully call
ioctl(fd, TIOCSTI, (char *)cp)
or is there a workaround?
I used the "standard" TIOCSTI definition of:
#define TIOCSTI 0x5214
[or whatever it is, under Linux -- can't check right now]. Perhaps it
is just that IOCTL directive which is out of whack. Basic conceptual
question still stands...
