=head1 WINDOWS PECULIARITIES
=head 2 Non-console applications
On Windows programs are compiled to either be I<console> applications or I<non-c
onsole>
applications. I<Console> applications always open a console window. There is no
straightforward way
to suppress this window.
Rakudo provides a separate set of executables suffixed with a C<'w'> (C<rakuw.ex
e>, C<rakudow.exe>,
...) that are compiled as I<non-console> applications. These do not spawn this c
onsole window.
B<WARNING> By default these I<non-console> applications will silently swallow ev
erything that is
printed to C<STDOUT> and C<STDERR>.
To receive the output of the program it suffices to redirect it externally:
C<rakuw.exe script.raku >stdout.txt 2>stderr.txt>
