I noticed a difference in the output capturing mechanism in the Erlang 19

It seems this new version captures output to STDERR too.

This is a testing perl code (in "perl_output_test.pl"):

print STDERR "Printed to STDERR\n";
print STDOUT "Printed to STDOUT\n";

This is my Erlang code:


Running in Windows 10:

Erlang 18:

Eshell V7.3  (abort with ^G)
1> os:cmd("perl_output_test.pl").
Printed to STDERR
"Printed to STDOUT\r\n"

Erlang 19:

Eshell V8.0  (abort with ^G)
1> os:cmd("perl_output_test.pl").
"Printed to STDERR\r\nPrinted to STDOUT\r\n"

Best regards,
