Re: installing problems...?


Running cdk.exe should install the program correctly.  Your autoexec.bat
should have environment vars like these:

SET PATH=%PATH%;D:\gnuwin32\b18\H-i386-cygwin32\bin;D:\gnuwin32\b18\tcl\bin
SET GCC_EXEC_PREFIX=D:\gnuwin32\b18\H-i386-cygwin32\lib\gcc-lib\
SET TCL_LIBRARY=D:/gnuwin32/b18/tcl/lib/tcl7.6
SET GDBTK_LIBRARY=D:/gnuwin32/b18/share/gdbtcl

(substituting appropriate drive letter)

Yes, you should be able to compile C and C++ programs.  As I understand it,
gnu-win32 will make assumptions based on your filename extension, but you
can also run g++ for c++ and gcc for c.  Look through recent mailing list
messages too for help with newbie questions (I've only recently installed
