Jasspa's MicroEmacs and the Cygwin environment.
- View SourceNiel,
Sorry for the slow reply. Just recently I have been looking
at the cygwin environment. I have managed to build this under
cygwin for the X-Windows version (i.e. with cygwin X-Windows
manager running), however there are some issues still to be
resolved with the terminal window - mainly "termcap". The build
is UNIX - however there is a poll() call that should
be used instead of an ioctl() and a redefinition of syserr_list
in order to get the code through the compiler and running.
So these need to be resolved before we will say that we
support cygwin. I can drop you the edits to date if you are
interested in progressing these issues any further. Otherwise
you will have to wait until we have resolved the termcap issues.
With respect to using the cygwin X-Windows environment with a
remote machine (i.e. remote UNIX machine running ME) then you
must use the latest release. This release includes some fixes
for the X-Windows client - releases prior to this date cause
problems with the X-Server.
> I've just installed cywgin on my machine (win2000) and I've been using some other small text editor to write my code and the GNU autotools to compile with. The text editor that I have was supplied on the cygwin website and is not very useful. I would like to use emacs, but I'm just not sure which platform to download it for. I'm going to use it straight from the bash prompt through cygwin - does that mean that I have to get a UNIX version of jasspa?
