Subject Re: Compiling on cygwin
Date Fri, 17 Jun 2011 12:02:23 GMT

I finally got it compiling with threads with cygwin (I was missing a
buildconfig first) but then I had a problem with winsock.h that
I didn't know how to solve.

I think I'll try out with MS Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition. That
should be more "native", I assume.
