[v1.1 Update] "Null Device fix for Cygwin"

While testing code thoroughly, before v1.2 release, I became aware of wrong code having got committed in docx2txt.pl (11 December 2011: Fixed nullDevice for Cygwin). This had been part of release v1.1.

Though it has been fixed in CVS code on 14/01/2012, but those using v1.1, can update following line in docx2txt.pl

if ($ENV{OS} =~ /^Windows/ && -e $ENV{OSTYPE}) {


if ($ENV{OS} =~ /^Windows/ && !(exists $ENV{OSTYPE} || exists $ENV{HOME})) {


Even if you do not make this update, it won't make any difference in the functionality of the script as far as docx to text conversion is concerned.
