There are no package test results for this package

This package was submitted prior to moderation and has not been approved. While it is likely safe for you, there is more risk involved.

Unlike CygWin or Msys, native ports do not rely on some kind of Unix emulation, so that there is no need to install additional emulation libraries. At present, all developments have been done under MS-Windows-XP, using the Mingw port of the GNU C and C++ (GCC) compilers. Utilities and libraries provided by GnuWin, are used and distributed with packages such as GNU Emacs and KDE-Windows.

This package can be installed multiple times. Only updated tools since the last install will be downloaded and installed.

The packages that have been ported, fall into four broad categories:

GnuWin provides import libraries for MSVC and BCC wherever possible.
