The NT port works, but has not been tested extensively.
Currently, under NT4.0 with
Cygwin (version b20.1), prebuilt Cygnwin X11R6 binaries and an X server, we can run
pigi, the Ptolemy Interactive Graphical Interface.
There are two NT ports:
PTARCHenvironment variable is set to
nt4, then we build with Cygwin, which is a port of the GNU tools to Windows.
nt4is easier to port because Cygwin allows us to use the Unix GNU makefiles in the regular distribution.
nt4 port requires that Cygwin be present.
The port was done with version
b20.1 of Cygwin
The two biggest problems with the
nt4 port is
that it is slow, and incremental linking of stars is not supported.
PTARCHis set to
nt4.vc, then we use Microsoft Windows Visual C++ 5.0. This port relies on using
makefile.vcfiles which are MS VC++ versions of the usually
nt4.vc port does not yet work, there
are problems creating dlls. The
has not been built recently, and probably does not work.
Currently, we can only compile
using MSVC++. This port is substantially incomplete.

nt4.vcport be completed?
nt4port has higher priority, so after
nt4, we may start work on the
