LibGW32C for Windows

LibGW32C: GNU C library




This is an implementation of a small part of GLibC, just enough to compile most Unix programs on MS Windows. It contains functions for passwords, process id's groups, and strings. Most are interfaces to the MS-Windows Win32 API. Some are just dummy functions that do nothing.

The following functions are provided:

The documentation of most of these functions is in the Glibc-documentation, in the Linux manpages and in the FreeBsd manpages.

Installation, Usage and Help

Use of LibGw32c as a separate development library is very complicated. The most practical way is to copy the source code for the necessary functions to your own source code and to adapt your include files and Makefiles. For some functions you must also link with the following standard libraries: - libole32.a - libuuid.a - libwsock32.a
