Hi .......

I saw references on this list to CVS and started looking for myself out of 
interest.  I hadn't realised just how easy it is to make a port of GTK+ 
based code from Linux to Windows.  I've been experimenting with the 
Glade visual front end builder (not written anything serious yet).  

The GTK+ libraries are available as pre-compiled win32 dll's together with 
modified headers, and library stubs. Everything you need can be 
downloaded from: http://user.sgic.fi/~tml/gimp/win32/ and installed under 

A Linux/GTK+ experiment that I had made using Glade under Linux now 
runs perfectly under Windows, made with the Windows port of GCC and 
using just a few DLL's.
