I don't really know anything about Windows programming but i'd imagine the
Windows C runtime offers an stdout and stderr the same way as under *nix.
Oh, if that were true everyone would be a lot happier.
It depends on which flags you give the compiler.
I use mingw32 to cross compile. If you give it -mwindows you don't get
stdout/stderr/stdin and you also don't get a nasty empty console window
when you invoke the program from Explorer.
What actually happens when you try to use stderr/stdout from a -mwindows
program also varies depending on version of mingw and version of windows.
Sometimes your bytes just get ignored, sometimes an exception is raised,
sometimes the program tight loops, sometimes it burns your toast and
scares your cat.
