Really?  Is that just missing from the Windows/NT README then?
Do you know what the procedure for compiling is?

There are multiple ports.

And in fact, what I would also like is to be able to have my
32-bit DOS-extended version back again.  I used to have CVS
compiling under that environment.  Using EMX 0.9b.  I can't
remember which version I what I needed to do to get that
working.

The platform is an arbitrary and unspecified platform that is
100% ISO C conforming and 100% Posix library conforming.

It doesn't have any Unix-like shell.

So long as the application itself conforms to the two applicable
standards, it should compile out of the box.  At least each
source file should compile anyway (in the same way that a
"hello, world" program will compile).  I don't mind writing a
batch file to compile each source file in turn and then linking
it at the end.

BFN.  Paul.
