Hello everyone,

Is there any information on how to use the VWCL classes (
with Cygwin? I couldn't find any references in the mailing list archives. I
spoke to Todd Osborne at VWCL (see message attached) and he's not familiar
with the windows side of Cygwin.

Thanks for your help,

I am not familiar with Cygwin for Win32 development. I am not sure what all
they include in their C++ compiler distribution, or if it is complete enough
to compile any Windows code. Sorry I can't be of more help.
