I/O redirection of binary data
Fri Sep 11 06:17:00 GMT 1998
Hi gnu-win32 experts-
POSIX recommends that one could use the b(inary) modifier
in fopen for portability since the b has no effect on POSIX
systems but may be needed in, say, MS-DOS. How can
I deal with this in redirection? I often have a program do
program > data
and data is supposed to be binary but under gnu-win32 I noticed
that the file size is incorrect (it is larger probably due to CR/LFs?)
compared to POSIX systems. This also causes problems when
trying to read the file with anotherprogram < data.
Are there any non-intrusive solutions? WHen using stdout I am
not using fopen so I cannot easily use the binary flag...
