Hello everybody,
I've ran into this today:
I want to write a program that receives data on stdin (and does stuff with them, obviously;) However, the StdIn function of Masm32.lib only works for keyboard input - not for Unix-style pipe or redirect (e.g.
someotherprogram | myProgram
myProgram < inputFile.txt
). Ideas, anyone? Thanks.

There is a tutorial at Iczelion's site that covers pipe's I think that it is exactly what you are looking for:

No, I'm sorry - it doesn't solve the problem. This creates a new pipe and writes to/reads from it.
What I need is a way to read the stdin.
StdIn only works with direct keyboard input - so does the GetStdHandle and ReadConsole thing.
If the stdinput of the program is a stdoutput of another program, the functions seem to think that there's no input.
