Cool!  I've been trying to dig my way free to get to this stuff, but I
haven't had the chance.  Thanks!

I'll apply your patch and look and see if there are any changes/updates to
the stuff I'm using currently since I released my patch.  I'm sure there
are some changes, mostly relating to building/registering COM components
and OLE servers.  I'll send out an updated patch against your patched
2.2.0 when I've done that.

Thanks Zachary!

We moved win32 changes which Greg Spencer posted against cons 1.8 to cons
The resulting cons works with the original and

I attach the patch made against 1.126; the latest version today is
1.147, so things change very rapidly.
I made the patch on NT, so it has dos line endings.

Steven, would it be possible to merge these changes into 2.3.0?
I believe Windows users will appreciate the inclusion of these features
if they are not perfect.

Two comments:

1. Greg's methodology is to compile from the source directory (not from
linked build directory).
This allows to run compiles and debug from the MS Visual Studio.
If you have Commands which generate .cpp files which then need to be
compiled, then these
intermediate .cpp files need to be copied or moved from the build
to the source directory.

2. The patch also includes the change necessary for the long link commands
on NT.
Temporary files for these commands could be created in some other, maybe
more elegant way.

Thanks, Zach.
