The attached patch fixes the following problems on
Windows:
- cpp.py uses os.open instead of os.popen.
- cpp.py requires English version of cl.exe
- batch files are not installed
- batch files refer to FNORB_HOME.

The latter two are fixed by printing a message in
setup.py, asking the user to correct the problems
herself.

    Hi Bertram,

    Thanks for the bug-report, but I cannot see any patch files
    here!

    I am particularly interested in how you worked out wether or
    not cl.exe
    is in the path or not.

    As far as batchfiles go: this was covered in the README file
    but I
    agree that a nice message from setup.py would be good.
    However, are
    batchfiles still necessary? I found that I could just add
    the scripts
    directory to my path and then execute the Python scripts
    directly (ie by
    running 'foo.py') rather than running through a batchfile.

    I have little experience with Python under Windows and so I
    do not
    know what you would expect in this regard from a Python module.

    Raymond

    Thanks for the patch, applied as setup.py 1.5, cpp.py 1.4.
