    Default nios2-terminal can't read input from pipe

    I get this error when I try to pipe even one line into nios2-terminal:

    nios2-terminal: error: Gathering input from STDIO

    I'm running 16.1 196 on Windows 7.

    I've tried using cat as well as my own C program that does a popen() around nios2-terminal.

    cat test.cmd | nios2-terminal -i 0

    If I type the input manually into nios2-terminal, it works fine. Unfortunately, I need to send many lines to the nios2 CPU.

    I've searched the forum posts and have found inconsistent information, including a mention that this could be a bug that has not been fixed yet.

    I do not currently have Quartus Pro so can't use the System Console TCL method.

    Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Default Re: nios2-terminal can't read input from pipe

    Our FAE confirmed this bug.

    The workaround I'm doing is to use the system console and a separate jtag master.
