Re: carriage return newline being appended when using redirection in binary mode




H Brian , Marco -

Output from type and which and cygcheck.out attached

chrisd@edmund:chrisd > type -a echo
/usr/bin/ksh: whence: -a: unknown option chrisd@edmund:chrisd > which -a
echo /usr/bin/echo /usr/bin/echo

This behaviour of the redirection can also be replicated using sed, etc.

chrisd@edmund:chrisd > od -c foo.txt
0000000   H   e   l   l   o  \n
0000006

chrisd@edmund:chrisd > sed 's/Hello/Goodbye/' foo.txt | od -c
0000000   G   o   o   d   b   y   e  \n
0000010

chrisd@edmund:chrisd > sed 's/Hello/Goodbye/' foo.txt > boo.txt
chrisd@edmund:chrisd > od -c boo.txt
0000000   G   o   o   d   b   y   e  \r  \n
0000011

Curious case of pipe to cat then redirect 

chrisd@edmund:chrisd > sed 's/Hello/Goodbye/' foo.txt | cat > boo.txt
chrisd@edmund:chrisd > od -c boo.txt
0000000   G   o   o   d   b   y   e  \n
0000010

chrisd@edmund:chrisd > echo $CYGWIN
nodosfilewarning codepage:utf-8 binmode

Cheers

Subject: carriage return newline being appended when using redirection in
binary mode

Hi -

I'm having problems with carriage return newline being appended when using
redirection in binary mode. If I pipe to cat and redirect the newline is
preserved, which is odd.

This does seem contrary to the following posts
