  • Crashes W2K! (Score:2, Informative)

    I just crashed my own computer!

    I'm using cygwin Perl and interestingly, it doesn't crash it when run under cygwin bash, but does when run under the old command.com/MSDOS prompt. Cygwin bash must not use the offending module for output, or does something else that prevents the problem.

    One correction. I think you meant:

    perl -e 'while(1){print "\b\t\t\t\t\t\t"}'

    'for(1)' doesn't loop, which seems to be required.
    The above actually doesn't work either under command.com because of a quoting problem, but:

      Indeed, 'for(1)' goes through the loop only once. But 'for(;;)' loops forever.
