Hello P4'ers

Has anyone had any success with using Jeff's p4untar tool in a cygwin

interpreter in cygwin and p4tar's usage of pipes.

The only way I could get results was if I uninstalled the perl
interpreter from cygwin and installed a Win32 perl interpreter from

Has anyone else come across this problem?  (i.e.: or is it just me?)
