is there a possibility to compile GTK Applications in CYGWIN in such a way,
that you can start them from the Windows Desktop, instead just from the CYGWIN
Any program compiled with Cygwin can be invoked directly outside of bash.
Some may give better results than others, depending on how you set up your
Windows path, whether it's a console app or not, etc. I'm not a Cygwin GTK
expert but I believe if you compile a GTK app using the GTK package
distributed with Cygwin, you will require X, which means you'll need to be
running the X server before you can successfully start the program.
How could such a program automatically find all required dll's ?
By looking in the PATH.
Is there a DEFINE Available for compilations by cygwin, that is actually beeing
compiled with CYGWIN, instead of normal Unix eg a
WINDOWS=1 variable ?
Look for telltale defines returned by typing "gcc -v".
