text catalogs et al

I am porting an application into cygwin having previously ported to a beta
Interix without any problems other than I can not iconify it (yet).. I used
the the cygwin X server.
Below I have listed comments and where I have difficulties. Any input will
be gratefully received and will be instantly applied.
None of this is at the level I am used to reading in the mail. Quite simple
I am using a csh environment, sorry old habits die hard. The machine has
1Gb memory and an AMD Athlon 2800+, 2.08 GHz processor and the Windows 2003
The application is quite complex, uses X plus Motrif widgets. There are no
known bugs in this app.
Firstly it is very slow to changed directory using an access alias, I have
changed the PATH to that recommended in the FAQ to no effect..
I have refreshed my installation with a cygwin download from yesterday,
4/4/04, and recompiled all the application and its libraries including motif..
I cannot find any catalog functions, e.g. gencat, catopen and catgets. Do
they exist or should I write them?
Lseek(descriptor, 0L, 2) returns 0 on all files. Something I am missing,
other than hair and brain cells? lseek(fd, disp,0) does not seem to work
either. Is there something different that I should be doing to keep cygwin
happy? If so what other low level file handling should I be aware of?
A script with a first line of "#!/bin/ksh" does not work and the simple ksh
scripting is not recognised. It complained about the "#!" and I guess that
ksh is not implemented in cygwin? I need to check the setup.exe table for
cuserid only returns the first 9 characters of the user name. ( Not yet
checked setting of L_cuserid)
There are include file conflicts Xlib.h & stddef.h (wchar_t), Xos.h &
nl_types.h seems partially replaced by langinfo.h
lockf does not exist, does cygwin use fnctl?
Nice to see IPC in the dll now. Have not tried it yet because of above
Nice to put a face to a name, thanks Harold.
