parity 1.2.3

parity is an open source project who's goal it is to ease porting applications from UNIX-like systems to Windows. It relies on the presence of a UNIX Layer for Windows such as Interix or Cygwin. parity is most tested on Microsofts Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications, so it will work there best.

parity uses Microsoft Tools - like cl.exe, link.exe, etc. - to mimic a GCC like interface, while really compiling natively for Windows. This results in pure and native Windows Libraries and Executables, which can be mixed freely with any existing Software pieces.... read more

parity trunk to support Cygwin

Since today morning, parity fully supports cygwin environments!

This doesn't seem so spectacular, but i didn't manage to get predecessor of parity (wgcc) to run stable on cygwin.

Please have a look at the WIKI http://parity.wiki.sourceforge.net/Building+parity+from+Cygwin for instructions on how to build parity on cygwin

Still a patch for libtool is missing to support shared libraries fully.

parity: 1.0 released

Parity is the Successor of WGCC. It's purpose is to provide a GCC/LD like interface for the MS Compiler/Linker. It's primary target is Microsoft SUA, where it aids in compiling native Windows Binaries using UNIX like mechanisms (like libtool, etc.)
