Proposing TCM as a cygwin package
Mon Jan 27 18:21:00 GMT 2003
Thank you, Pierre and Igor.
But: can I put something like "xfig" into my setup.hint and setup.exe
will find it? The package search finds lots of TeX-stuff when searching
for xfig, but not xfig itself.
BTW: transfig 3.2.4 compiles without errors, but with some warnings.
