Re: Cross complie linux make files onto a windows 7 machine using PGI Cygwin
Thanks for your response, I am using the PGI compiler's bash shell, which
I am told uses cygwin, but i may be way off. I do have a plain cygwin as
well with the make module, and I get the same errors. I am assuming that
what I am trying to do is simple for Cygwin, take a linux makefile and
compile it through cygwin onto windows, is there extra synax I need to use
