How ask a question on Tkgate for Cygwin ?

In first, thanks a lot for the really quickly answer,

I'm afraid, I've got a problem with the "make" command and some gaps too. 
In the Cygwin windows, when I run the "make" command, Cygwin answer "command
not found" ("commande introuvable" in French)
Perhaps Cygwin isn't install correctly ?
Thanks in advance,

tkgate isn't present as a Cygwin package, so you will have to build it from
source yourself. tkgate compiles out of the box under Cygwin. 
However, Fedora carries four patches [1], and you may consider looking at
these to see if they are applicable for Cygwin.

Here are the commands I used to compile tkgate:

     tar -xf tkgate-2.0-b10.tgz
     cd tkgate-2.0-b10/

Then I ran the application like this:

     XWin -multiwindow &
     export DISPLAY=:0.0
     ./src/tkgate/tkgate &

The tkgate application started, and I was presented with a window containing
a number of electrical circuit diagrams. However, tkgate isn't an
application I'm familiar with, so I stopped there.

You could also install it into your Cygwin installation (although I didn't
try this):

     make install

Hope this helps,
