OK, you're welcome: I just sent you the files via private mail.

Thanks. Nice consolidated patches. :-)

I have just uploaded it to http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/lzip/plzip/

Would it be possible to incorporate the pread/pwrite implementations of Hannes Domani into MinGW? This would solve the
problem not only for plzip.
Sounds like a good idea. But as it is your project and Hannes Domanis contributed code, I'm out of that game. One of you two should trigger that step. Would that be possible?

I have added it to my todo list. I'll try to convince the MinGW people to accept the code.

Side note: Looking closely it seems that your goal is already missed:
 -> ALL of your lzip-like projects already incororate Windows
specific code.

A little inaccuracy sometimes saves tons of explanation. ;-)

By "Windows code" I meant "an appreciable amount of ugly Windows code that may cause maintenance problems in the future". A few macros and a small fragment like:

#if defined(__MSVCRT__) || defined(__OS2__)
  setmode( STDIN_FILENO, O_BINARY );

that is not even Windows specific, does not qualify as Windows code.
