It's not just you.  I haven't ever tried to figure out what the issue is,
though.  Perhaps I'll have some time to look at it tonight.

Subject: [p4] p4tar/p4untar in cygwin?

Hello P4'ers

Has anyone had any success with using Jeff's p4untar tool in a cygwin
environment?  I think that there may be a problem with the perl 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 ActiveState.

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