May be duplicate of #25627 (http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?25627)

Fri 30 Dec 2011 12:14:33 AM UTC, original submission:

Installed DDD for Cygwin last night. When using the Execution Window feature. The executing program receives additional arguments which I am pretty sure are not supposed to be there.

Chiefly the redirection arguments to the Window's TTY are sent to the program via argc/argv. And they appear before the arguments supplied by "set args".

I am newish to debugging for Nix targets. But I ran some tests from outside DDD and even when supplying such args they did not appear inside the program. Which is to say the shell filtered them out properly.

PS: This bug tracker needs to be more prominent on the http://www.gnu.org/software/ddd/ webpage. It's easy to get the idea that the DDD mailing list is the only way to submit bugs. If that's how bugs are going to be raised in the 21st century I think most people would not bother, and opensource will languish. Web software efforts are a little bit better. OS projects need to modernize ASAP.
