If I included the category code with the same executable(like static link or 
object file) it works, yes. But if
I make the category code as dll or framework and link with the executable, it 
does not work. I'm using MinGW.
The framework itself does not work without patching.(Refer to one of my 
previous mail, framework.mak) I will
try if it works if I load them dynamically with bundle.

  That interesting - categories should be in gcc and nothing to do with
  GNUstep. I wrote objective C under windows for many years (using cygwin)
  and used category methods all the time - they seemed to work fine.
  You have to make sure that the object file containing the method is linked
  into the application somehow though. If its in a library then this doesnt
  seem to happen automatically. I used to explicity put all my category
  methods into separate .o's and link them explicity rather than trying to
  get them out of a library.
  
  -bat.
