in thread solved: beginners trap: one liner
From a practical standpoint, the observed results remain the same.
I didn't contradict the results. It is indeed based on the shell (and not just in Windows). I just protested your claim that pryrt was wrong.
(As an aside, did you know that Windows programs must parse their own command lines for arguments? That means that somewhere along the process of a cygwin program calling a Windows program, there must be a step that involves generating a Windows-compatible command line from the one actually used. Fun.)
If we're going to help people with the problems they see, I think we should learn as much as we can about the tools they use.
That's why I spoke up. Claiming that running a GNU/Linux program is running a Windows program doesn't help anyone. One should be aware that one is running a program in a virtual box when one does so because there are ramifications.
