I'm having trouble trying to install GDL on Cygwin. It
would really help out if there was an installer package
that worked through the normal cygwin setup program. My
biggest problem is that some libraries do not appear to
be installed in the places where they are expected to
be. Since there is a FINK installer, perhaps making a
Cygwin installer wouldn't be so difficult.

I'm really looking forward to trying GDL. Thank you!

    Just for the record: I'm having trouble on cygwin as well.
    And I'd second the appreciation if someone with knowledge of
    the arcana of cygwin might bless us with a package or such.
    Under linux, this is SUCH a fine piece of software...

  • Just an update: GDL can be compiled under Cugwin
    (see e.g.: http://gnudatalanguage.sourceforge.net/screenshots/screenshot09.png\)
    All patches related to GDL's source code are already in the CVS (thanks to Mateusz Turcza)
    There are, however, still some patches needed for Cygwin to get it compiled which are not yet included in the Cygwin release.
