In Cygwin terminal (bash) I typed:
cmp <(echo echo1) <(echo echo2)
only on 32bit, on 64 I see
$ cmp <(echo echo1) <(echo echo2)
/dev/fd/63 /dev/fd/62 differ: byte 5, line 1
I suspect a timing issue, and the result is not well defined
This does not print anything.
Not even with -b.
On Linux (Ubuntu 12.04 in VMWare) it reports that the inputs are different.
Or am I missing something?
I just updated to latest version of cygwin, to be sure.
32 bit version.
On Windows 8.1 Pro x64 (all updates)
