Any luck so far?


I've gotten most things running, including the loadbale modules, and messed up paths previously reported, and I've fixed up the install scripts. Major problems still include the ctrl-c handling (though that is partially fixed), the readline stuff (though I've build a buggy readline 5.0 under mingw), and problem I've having with the permissions of _popen under W32 (which is notable preventing texinfo help from being displayed).. There is also a problem of recognizing that an rxvt is interactive that is probably related to the readline issues, though that can be worked around by using cmd.exe instead..

Once those are fixed it will be time to show what I have to a larger audience... Lack of time, including a personal absence of more then 2 weeks for vacations has made progress slow though, so don't hold your breath.
