Re: wstring support in GCC 4.1.2 in Cygwin 1.5.25-11

Thanks a lot for the valuable information.

I am trying to port my application developed in linux to windows, now as
it is quiet clear that I could not use cygwin, due to lack of Unicode
is there any other alternative to try out my porting activity.

Thanking you all once again for the great help.
