Hi all,

Ruby 1.8.6
Windows XP Pro

I tried this standalone snippet:

io = IO.popen('date /t')

Running that with -w I get this warning:

The process tried to write to a nonexistent pipe

However, if I add a simple "io.read" on the next line the warning goes
away. I do not see the same warning on Unix systems.

What's the deal?

Thanks,

Dan
