I think it would be better to look into getting rid of awk, grep etc as
much as possible than to add more hair into their usage. I have a half
finished patch for this, I'll look into completing and pushing it soon.

. /dev/null becomes NUL

devnull() from File::Spec could be used for this on all platforms
instead of figuring it ourselves.

You can see that I'm a complete perl n00b! :-)

Current rackerhacker master now deals with the awk, stty, and devnull things in a way that they should require no modifications on Windows (I have no way to test that on Windows at the moment though, but it still works for me in Linux).

I'm trying to test in Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit with Strawberry Perl but I can't work the script. When I execute the scripts tell me "Unable to find mysqladmin in your $PATH. Is MySQL installed?".
I see the term "put double quotes around path to mysqladmin", but I don't know the place where I should put double quotes.
Can you help me please?

Getting this script to work on Windows will be a challenge. Let me know if you're still interested in pursuing this.
