Platforms and supported compilers

The GrWin Library with grwnd.exe is expected to work on any PC's where one of Windows Xp/2000/NT/Me/9x (x86) is running. In developing this project, a top priority is to make a free system, and currently main targets are MinGW-2.0 and Cygnus Cygwin 1.3.x. Other compiler systems listed in the table below are also available. Especially as f2c ( a Fortran 77 to C translator ) is supported for Intel(R) C++, Borland C/C++, Microsoft Visual C++ and Digital Mars C/C++ compilers, those users who do not have a Fortran compiler can do graphics programming by Fortran 77.

This project has been developed specifically for Win32 platforms ( Windows Xp/2000/NT/Me/9x ), and deeply depends on the Win32 API. So there is no plan to port this to other platforms.
