in reply to IO:Tty installation in cygwin fails. stuck at "trying to open /dev/tty1."

Based on a comment (Re^3: IO::Pty with Cygwin - can't install (by azredwing), in thread IO::Pty with Cygwin - can't install (also by azredwing) it looks like will work even if that particular test in IO::Tty fails.

YMMV, but you could try this and see if it helps:

# cpan cpan[1]> notest install IO::Tty cpan[2]> install Expect

If all goes well, Expect will pass its tests and install. It worked for me (Windows Vista, Cygwin 1.7.9-1.)

There is also a more drastic form of install, "force install IO::Tty", which will run the test but attempts to continue even if there are failures. Since the test hangs, you will have to control-C out of the test so the install will complete.
