What is going to be the offical Win32 environment?


what has been tested, and what was referred to in the patch posted a couple of
weeks ago, is native (gdi-based) gtk, which means using activestate's perl. 
IMO this is for the best, because this setup has the fewest requirements at
runtime (i.e., you don't have to install cygwin and an X server), although
building it really sucks.

it should be possible to get it build (probably more easily) with cygwin's
perl, but i won't guarantee that it will work with the native gdk -- in fact i
suspect it won't (crtdll.dll clashing with cygwin1.dll).  then again, if
anybody can get it working on cygwin, we'd like to hear about it.

winGS (or what ever it is called)


I will be happy to test since the only machine I have regular access to is
since my laptop died is a WinME machine.

my condolences, and best wishes for a speedy return to sanity.  :-)
