I have not been able to compile SmallEiffelPlus under
CygWin on a Win95 computer. There seems to be more
than one category of errors.

The first category:
CygWin environment variables aren't recognized during
the make process. Instead the variable needs to be
defined in an MSDos process before entering CygWin.
I don't know what causes this, and perhaps this isn't
the correct place to report it. But since I don't
know what causes it....

The second category:
Even if I set the environment variables externally,
it still doesn't work. There is a complaint that
system.se doesn't recognize Windows.tools (Sorry,
that may be slightly wrong. The problem happened a
few hours ago, and I don't have Win95 on my home
computer. It's nearly right.)

There is probably also a third category, at least
there was with SmallEiffel. After a "successful"
build, running compile, either from DOS or from
inside CygWin, hung the process.

I got into this because a simple substitution of the
libraries from SmallEiffelPlus into
elj-win32/SmallEiffel didn't work (big surprise), but
I wanted to use the modified libraries that you have
in your String class. Any suggestion as to how to
accomplish this would be desired.

Thank you.
