This is a bug report for perl from mjw@bahnhof.se,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.34 running under perl v5.8.0.

The Term::ReadKey seems to be broken in CygWin (Win98SE) Perl


#! /usr/bin/perl
use Term::ReadKey;

ReadMode 'cbreak';
for (;;) {
   $char = ReadKey(-1);
   if (defined($char)) {
     print $char;
     exit();
   }
}


This small program will never terminate. ReadKey(-1) does not
work and does not accept any keypresses.

'perlbug' utility seems to be broken under CygWin as well.

Therefore I had to manually generate the system info and paste i
it below.
