Windows support of POSIX is claimed but I'm sure is limited.  Here's the 
overview URL:

Chapter 8 of the above describes some limitations for fcntl re POSIX.1, see 
Table 3:

Chapter 9 of the above describes fcntl but rewrites it away, see "File and Data 
Access" link:

The Visual C++ 6.0 Run-Time Library Reference, see "Alphabetic Function 
Reference" in left frame:
just plain flat out omits "fcntl" function altogether.

If you send me an "fcntl" function prototype and requirements
description, I'll see what's possible using native Win32 API.
