Cygwin: very limited for the additional hassle of being limited to a Win32
environment and having to tote the cygwin dll's everywhere you want to run
your app, not to mention having a whole second DJGPP installation.
Applications compiled with DJGPP/Cygwin DO NOT run under DOS. What is the
purpose of using DJGPP, then?
RSXNTDJ can compile some Windows things, but it's buggy. I can tell right
away that it is contributed software that a genereous soul wrote in
Better of using native M$ Visual C for professional industrial-strength
Windoze development, sorry.
Normally, DJGPP apps all run in DOS windows under NT and Win95. Why do you
need to write a 'console application'? To me it seems that you are just
limiting yourself. But your the boss ;-)
