Re: Quick question, please help!
Why are you writing directly to Chris? This is a public mailing list.

This is a public mailing list for non-xfree cygwin related topics.
Xfree questions do not belong here. Interix questions do NOT belong
here, unless they somehow relate to cygwin.

Let me see if I understand: You say "interix is better than cygwin, and
you must use interix regardless, because your boss likes it." So you
want OUR help to get your code working with a DIFFERENT product? Why
Please see http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html to
understand the motivations behind the coders on public mailing lists.
Then ask yourself, given that information, why subscribers to *this*
mailing list would assist you.
On the cygwin-xfree list, you *could* pose this question as "Can
cygwin-xfree work with the interix runtime instead of cygwin?" The
answer is probably no without significant work, but at least the
question would be (sortof) ontopic there. It is totally offtopic here.
