TCC 9.02.152 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] TCC Build 152 Windows XP Build 2600 Service Pack 3 When I do this and type "hello<enter>" it does what I'd expect. However, if I press ^C when it is waiting, the whole window vanishes. It happens whether a stand-alone TCC or within a TCMD tab. Can others reproduce this? I fear maybe not, because I have a suspicion that the original fault comes from within my machine's perl.dll echo "%@perl[$_=<>]" -- 2008 Fridays: 4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, 12/12 and 5/9, 9/5, 7/11, 11/7.
