newbie question (fwd)
Tue Oct 31 20:47:00 GMT 2000
I am new to cygwin tools. I have written a shell sort of
interface using tcl/tk and extending it through the tcl/tk libraries in
"c" language. This app has a text widget and some menus. On linux machine
the code compiles and works fine. On windows 98 using the following tools
i get the below problem.
cygwin tools used:
If i compile with the -mwindows option i get a warning message
"Cannot find entry symbol _winMainCRTStartup" and no GUI appears. I have
to use task manager to kill the application.
If i compile without the -mwindows option i get a executable. If i run the
executable the shell appears. But i am not able to type in anything in the
text widget of the shell nor am i able to select the menu items.
I have placed cygtcl80.dll , cygtk80.dll and cygwin1.dll in the place
where the executable is created.
I would be very thankful if any of you tell me the reason and possible
