getDirectoryContents: failed (No error)
Reported on ghc-bugs by email@example.com:
this error has been reported before and was fixed in ghc 6.4.1 but has been revived in ghc 6.4.2:
test3.exe: .: getDirectoryContents: failed (No error) module Main where import System.Directory main = do s <- getDirectoryContents "." putStr (concat s)
This works fine for ghc 6.4.1 bld1. The error is encountered in 6.4.2 snapshots from Feb. 25 and newer (elder ones have not tested), and the same snapshots with the MinGW files from afore mentioned ghc 6.4.1 (it's not the MinGW).
My system is: Cygwin (WinXP) and ghc 6.4.1 bld1 or 6.4.2 (Cajal works better).
I would like to add a wish: could we have a native Cygwin port?
