Thanks for the patch, but the next version of Sys::Syslog will simply skip the stream test under Cygwin because it has IMO no real meaning here, especially as the Unix native mechanism already works and as there will be a Win32 mechanism (using EventLog). -- Sébastien Aperghis-Tramoni Close the world, txEn eht nepO.

Why? The /dev/log stream works fine in cygwin, same as under any Unix. You only have to use it. With a better error message people might install syslog-ng then. -- Reini

Why not, but there is no need to install syslog-ng in order to use Sys::Syslog under Cygwin. It already converts native log events to Win32 events. If you execute "make test" and then open the events logger, you'll see a couple of entries in the Application journal. But ok, if you really want to, I'll apply your patch. -- Sébastien Aperghis-Tramoni Close the world, txEn eht nepO.
