Re: [cdt-dev] Bug 159803: PTY in console mode on Windows

Hi Thomas,


using winpty in console mode on Windows has always been an experimental feature which can only be enabled with -Dorg.eclipse.cdt.core.winpty_console_mode=true.

Anyway, I just tried it with a hello world project and some other programs. It seems to work for me (Windows 7 64-bit).

Please provide details about the target program, how you build it and on which version of Windows you run it.

Subject: [cdt-dev] Bug 159803: PTY in console mode on Windows




Marc-AndrĂ© and I are currently investigating the ctrl-D issue (Bug 159803). While trying to figure out whether a possible fix would have some issues on Windows I tried to use the PTY in console mode, explicitly enabled with -Dorg.eclipse.cdt.core.winpty_console_mode=true. This resulted in my target program to terminate immediately, regardless of whether it contained I/O or not.

Has anybody recently used the PTY in console mode on Windows successfully? I remember that the corresponding flag in the run configuration had been disabled on Windows for quite some time (I don’t know whether it had been active at any time at all), so it would have been required to set this explicitly using the system property mentioned above.


Any input on that issue is welcome!
