Re: Invalid compiler error
I made the change you suggested and that fixed the problem. I will let
the implementor of the library know about this, as its obviously a bug.
I have never encountered this kind of syntax before where the #elif is
used without a defined, so I didn't know how valid it was. It seems in
some circumstances it might work, and in others it won't. Probably best
to avoid it since it is unreliable.

I'm sorry. I misread what you wrote. I thought you were suggesting
that I try the #elif directive in simple coding example to see if the
compiler would accept it. This is was I used:
This program compiles just fine, and if I define the proper value, it
print the expected text. So it looks like the #elif directive, in
general, is compatable with the Cygwin compiler. It doesn't explain why
the error message still occurs. I suppose I could try changing the code
to what you actually suggested and see if that works.
IIRC the elif directive requires the define to be, well, defined.
the error you got suggests to me that
would be a better test.
