This is what their page says -> <quote> What Is Cygwin? Cygwin is a UNIX environment for Windows. </quote> I don't want UNIX for Windows. I want to build apps that are competitive vs other Windows apps build with Visual C++

I've got to the point where I see C as legacy and only very important to handle APIs to systems built in C. Just reading the first 2 chapters of Stroustrup C++ reference and you see things differently, or his paper Learning Standard C++ as a New Language

Not sure it's worth it. I thought about building a C++ parser that translates a Rebol script into C++ , for performance but I don't think it's worth it. You code in C++ directly for performance and you use Rebol for prototyping. In GUIs I think differently, Rebol might do the job so why spend more time to do the same. ___________________________________________________ Yahoo!
