in thread IO::Pty with Cygwin - can't install

Thanks for this, Rob. I'm running Cygwin 1.7.6-1 and it doesn't want to go. Did the installation stall for you at 'opening /dev/tty1', and if so, how long did it take to get past that?

I also couldn't find 1.7.5 online; newest version is 1.7.6 and there's no link on the Cygwin site to download previous versions. Do you think you could provide the setup.exe to me?

    Actually, no worries. I just installed manually instead of from the command line and skipped the make test. I ran my script that uses IO::Pty on Cygwin and it works perfectly. Not sure why it couldn't do make test.

      Cygwin can be a bit funny about what it lets you do from certain locations. Maybe this is just one of its quirks.

      Good that it's working for you.

      Cheers,
      Rob
