Well, Corinna, since you are a newbie, it's OK that you don't know this.
I mean, having so little to do with Cygwin, you can't be expected to know
internal information like this intimately... wait, your Corinna Vinschen,
right? *The* Corinna Vinschen? Cygwin developer for years now? Hm,
well then that changes the picture significantly. If you say Cygwin
runs on Windows platforms only and calls Win32 APIs, I believe you! ;-)
