I have put a zip archive of binary lout distribution for win32 at


It successfully processes all the standard documentation.  If you will
have problems - mail me.  The version on the ftp doesn't use

Oops, this is my own fault.  I compiled lout with collation first.
The problem is that the collation patch I've sent to Jeff (and that
was integrated in the lout 3.11) was made against the wrong source
tree.  One thing is missing from the patch: StringEqual and
StringLessEqual must be defined in terms of strcoll not strcmp when we
use collation.  Otherwise database are sorted with one collation order
and searched with another.  It was unnoticed since my Russian
collation sequnce on Unix have ASCII in asciibetical order so strcmp
and strcoll return identical results for ASCII.  In win32 locale for
Russian the ASCII is not in asciibetical order hence the problem
manifested.  My apologies.

As I have understood the problem on my way to home, the distribution
on the ftp doesn't have locale aware binaries.  I will update the
archive and include collating version in the beginning of the next
