Consider the following program.
It's a C program and working perfectly on linux machine. I generated a windows executable using Cygwin gcc compiler. But the executable fails to work.
Not sure why it's running on linux but not on windows.

This program takes a command line parameter (filename) as argument.
And takes input a string and append that string to the file and displays the content of the file.
