Regarding your follow up questions:
which (Windows) build systems would be affected?
I'm pretty sure ANY windows builds are affected, as this is an OS level thing. Which is to say even mingw, which has a slightly differently named flag (-console?), but has the same effect IIRC.
we could build two different executables (fluid and fluidc?).
Yes, a separate exec seems the only solution I think. See my reply above regarding details. I think fluid-cmd would be clearer; this is what I've seen other commercial apps do that run into the same problem, and I've used it too.
The only way to avoid a name change is to make separate directories, e.g. windows/fluid.exe and console/fluid.exe, but that can lead to confusion I think.
Note there are ways in DOS to start a windows app and wait for it to finish and get its exit code, namely:
start /WAIT fluid -c bla.fl
(But that doesn't solve the stdin/out/error problem.)
Re: your follow up comment to me about WIN32 affecting SUBSYSTEM, ya my edit and your reply crossed in time; I read back your first response and saw that was the effect.
