Great! Another step towards the disappearance of text mode.

Anyway, Cygwin versions builds and passes the test without any changes. I 
tested with lzip-1.11-rc3-20100729.

Thanks. So this means lzip only need to be modified for native Windows mode?

Your also going to have to include io.h to pull in the setmode(), then the tests pass.

The makefiles, configure and check.sh also need exeext added to properly support OS/2 and Windows.

Thanks. Those are too many changes just to work around bugs and shortcomings of two proprietary, non-posix OSs.

As my commitment is to provide high quality software for free posix systems, I hope you both will be so kind to patch lzip for your respective systems until those systems implement posix compatibility.
