I would like to recommend the xmds package for inclusion into cygwin.
xmds is the eXtensible Multi-Dimensional Simulator and is way to
quickly and easily solve differential equations in any arbitrary
dimension.  It is used frequently in physics and has wider utility in
fields such as mathematics, engineering and even chemistry and
computational biology.  It is released under the GPL version 2 and is
therefore OSI-compatible.  See its web page at
http://xmds.sourceforge.net for more information.

I have packaged up xmds within cygwin using the script based packaging
procedure on the cygwin website and the package files have been
uploaded to:


where they are signified by the "cygwin" in their filenames (sorry
about having to do that, but it was the best way to differentiate the
files which are currently uploaded). These files were only renamed to
have "cygwin" in the filename; they were originally packaged as per
the cygwin packaging instructions and did not have "cygwin" in the
filename initally.

The setup.hint file is appended to the end of this email.

It would be great to get xmds into cygwin!  Any feedback about the
package would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

XMDS is a code generator that integrates equations. You write
them down in human readable form in a XML file, and it goes
away and writes and compiles a C++ program that integrates
those equations as fast as it can possibly be done in your
