I am trying to port some Fortran/C code from Linux to Windows using Cygwin (CYGWIN_NT-6.1 elp-w7wks-40 1.7.30(0.272/5/3) 2014-05-23 10:36 i686 Cygwin)
The main program spawns several processes using fork() and one of those processes will create another process using clone(). I have read under the FAQ that glibc is not part of Cygwin and that using fork in Cygwin is not stable. I have been able to compile my code in Cygwin, but when trying to link my libraries (static), it cannot find clone function (under C code). Do you guys have any recommendations as far as whether to continue trying to get my code to work under Cygwin or should I try to find some other Windows compiler(s)?
I apologize if I am not being clear, but I am wondering if somebody else has had this issue and if they were able to resolve it.
