Description

Hi/2.

A child process by spawn() and exec() inherits a translation mode(O_TEXT/O_BINARY) of stdin/stdout/stderr of a parent process.

Whereas EMX and MinGW do not so. I think, EMX and MinGW are right.

However, a child process by fork() should inherit it like current.

Any idea ?

I think, current behavior of kLIBC is useful for non-console handles. However, if stdio/stdout/stderr of a child process is a console, then a translation mode of a parent process should be ignored. That is, those handles should be opened in text mode unconditionally in a child process.
