  • I wrote at least one working Expect.pm program on Cygwin, several months ago. I don't recall having to do anything to get it to work. I was pleasantly surprised that it did work.

      Yes, I meant that I would like to use Expect.pm on native Win32 without the full Cygwin stack.

      • Ah, I get it now. I'm betting that it relies on just way too much of the handling in the Cygwin DLL. What finally got Expect.pm working on Cygwin was, I believe, not changes to Expect.pm (and the modules it relies on), but improvements to the Cygwin DLL itself. I suppose someone could extract the relevant portions of the Cygwin DLL, but I imagine you might wind up with most of the DLL.

        But that's an uneducated opinion. It might in fact be very trivial.
