in reply to How to support Windows compatibility

Can anyone give me a hint as to why it doesn't work on Windows?

Pipes are files handles and select doesn't work for filehandles on Windows.

See Win32::SocketPair winopen2() and winopen2_5() for a workaround that redirects the output via sockets in order to alleviate the restriction.
