Re: [cdt-dev] Cross platform development

Yes, if you need *nix compatibility, cygwin is the way to go. Mingw is targeted at Windows developers.

Please respond to

[cdt-dev] Cross platform development

hallo cdt-dev,

I am using eclipse/cdt on windows2000. but the sources I write are
designed for openbsd (accessed through cvs).
I use mingw as compiler (tried cygwin which is a major pita* to
install) and found that some library calls (like unistd.h/getuid) are
not supported on windows. is there any way to emulate this?

like I said I _tried_ cygwin but failed to install it properly since I
only want to install what I need for developement. would a cygwin
environment give me what I need ?

best regards
