        This may be irrelevant to your thread, but...

        I store a lot of development tools in my C:\Dev directory. Every
once in a while, generally after an installation (like JBuilder), I get a
file called "null" in that directory with logging information about some
activity (like the install). Clearly, someone made an assumption there that
piping output to /dev/null would cause it to be ignored on Windows, as on
Unix. However, if a /dev directory exists, it creates and writes to a file
called null there.

        So... if by any chance your statement about "reading from NUL on
Windows" means "reading from /dev/null when on Windows", beware that it
might not result in an instant EOF if C:\Dev\null exists.

        Like I said, probably irrelevant, but I thought I'd mention it.
