As many of you may know, the binary distribution of MySQL for Windows
only ships with MSVC++ libraries. They have no binary distribution for
Cygwin. So what do you do if you want to develop c or c++ programs
talking to a native Windows MySQL server using the cygwin tools?
Where's cygwin's php and/or mysql. They probably got a lot going
against them but they are peoples choise. At least some communication
would be nice. And now riscing the lart, why doesn't cygwin cross the
border and take advantage of ported software. Lets face it, cygwin
will never bring posix to windows,
Wow. Do you know how to program? Do you understand what POSIX is? It
seems as if a newbie is making all these assertions.
Ah Chris, I love it when you trigger. Especially when you turn on that
innocent, I do not comprehend look. Let me start off with... Sure your
right.... in a white and black world.
Not bring POSIX to Windows?
We've already done that (and we're not even alone here).
No you didn't, even MS didn't. Do I have to point out the recently put
'Calling Cygwin python from the "DOS" shell vs. from BASH'
This has nothing to do with POSIX. Kindly do some reading on POSIX and
Cygwin, and even programming, before posting your assertions on this list.
It will do you a lot of good.
