( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi,

I've just got a new Windows 7 laptop at work - running this little script:

open(IN, "svn info c:/path/to/file |"); @l = <IN>; foreach (@l) { print "$_"; }
opens a new cmd window which runs the svn info command instead of being able to read the output in the script.

This doesn't happen on other W7 machines around here, so I'm guessing this is a config issue somewhere - but my Windows admin know-how is essentially inexistent....

Any constructive suggestion (so "switch to linux" is not an option :-)) welcome!

Michael

    [Corion]: ... that's not that great for quasi-disposable devices ;)
    [Eily]: can't you just remote connect to the linux machine ?
    [marto]: IIRC the hiemdal suite made life much easier on windows, and people on XDA developers put out released of windows only pages for adb that made it less of a pain
    [marto]: Eily you can't remote connect the physical device via USB ;)
    [Corion]: Eily: Sure, that's what I do, but some things you need to do on the Android device directly, like when navigating the bootloader :-)
    [Eily]: marto you just need a longer cable :P
    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, but I'm somewhat wary of installing random USB drivers downloaded from mega.nz , Google Drive or whatever, so Linux wins there due to there being no conflicts and me just having to edit one text file in the worst case, to add the USB vendor
    [hippo]: Long USB cable FTW.
    [Corion]: Eily: I've thought of that, but I don't like running long cables through the appartment because sooner or later I'll trip over it, pulling at least one device off its stand :)
    [marto]: hmm, may have to patch CPAN::Meta to move from search.cpan to metacpan in the META.json/yml files
