Re: check if coproc has output

Hi Roman, I do not. I cannot even strace the process because it is an .exe invoked from a windows wsl environment, but it shouldn't
 be a problem regarding the handling of the int signal, other scripts I made in the same manner handle it properly..
I haven't mentioned this in the first place because I had similar problems in the past with pure linux pipelines.
I have now discovered this:

if I invoke the .exe directly, eg:

long_running_process.exe | while etc

the ctrl+c is handled correctly, whether if I enclose it in a function like this:

  local cmd=($DOTNET_PRJ/pasteclip/pasteclip.exe $args)
  $cmd "$@"


winclip | while etc

shows the ctrl-c problem

zsh (under wsl) is 5.4.2

When you press Ctrl-C, zsh sends SIGINT to long_running_process.
Ideally, it should honor the signal and terminate. Do you know why it
doesn't do that?
