Guile, the GNU extension language and Scheme interpreter and
libraries, have been included in the Cygwin distribution.

Guile, the GNU Ubiquitous Intelligent Language for Extension, is a
scheme implementation designed for real world programming, supporting
a rich Unix interface, a module system, and undergoing rapid
development.  `guile' is a scheme interpreter that can execute scheme
scripts (with a #! line at the top of the file), or run as an inferior
scheme process inside Emacs.

Guile has been packaged in four parts: guile, guile-doc, guile-devel
and libguile14.

For a brief description of what these packages are and what they
contain, see http://cygwin.com/packages/ .

NOTE: This is the first Guile release as a Cygwin package; the first
version of Guile for Cygwin that uses and provides shared object
libraries (DLLs), and the first Cygwin package that links to libtool
(libltdl).  As such, you may experience bugs never seen before.

Please send questions or comments on Guile to the Cygwin mailing list
at: cygwin@cygwin.com.  [However, if you're having problems related to
LilyPond, please write to lilypond-user@gnu.org.]



To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link
on the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to
your system. Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick
up 'guile' from the 'Interpreters' category.

Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations. This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.

In the US, ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/
is a reliable high bandwidth connection, and already up to date.

In Japan, use ftp://ftp.u-aizu.ac.jp/pub/gnu/gnu-win32/ .

In Denmark, http://mirrors.sunsite.dk/cygwin/ is already up-to-date.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another
