Cygwin32: a free win32 porting layer for UNIX® applications

  title={Cygwin32: a free win32 porting layer for UNIX{\textregistered} applications},
  author={Geoffrey Noer},
Cygwin32 is a full-featured Win32 porting layer for UNIX applications, compatible with all Win32 hosts (currently Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 95, and Windows 98). It was invented in 1995 by Cygnus Solutions as part of the answer to the question of how to port the GNU development tools to the Win32 host. The Win32-hosted GNUPro compiler tools that use the library are available for a variety of embedded processors as well as a native version for writing Win32 programs. By basing this… Expand
Porting the Coda File System to Windows
Cross compilation from a Linux environment was most helpful to get a good development environment and the Coda file system client could be ported with very little patching and will likely soon run as well on Windows 9x as on Linux. Expand

Porting the Arla file system to Windows NT
This paper describes how we ported the Arla filesystem to Windows NT/2000. Windows is very different from the platforms (different flavors of Unix) that Arla was written for before. Arla consists ofExpand
