Re: Win32/MinGW port

Hi Piotr,

As far as I remember about half a year ago a patch for MigGW was submitted
by Franco Bez.
His home page is:
You can try to contact him of find his patch in MC list archives.
I'm just wondering : why don't you like cygwin port?
If you need a native Win32 Norton Commander clone,  the "Far manager" would
be better.
The cygwin port has one huge advantage comparing to Far and MigGW port of
MC - it allows to have a Unix shell prompt instead of dos command prompt
(actually as far as I remember the MigGW port doesn't even have working
command prompt).
