2.3.2 Windows NT, Windows 95/98 using Cygwin

On these platforms the Cygwin environment can be installed. Recent versions of Cygwin install very easily with the setup program available from the cygwin homepage. <http://sourceware.cygnus.com/cygwin/. GNU Go compiles out-of-the box using the standard Unix build procedure on the Cygwin environment. After installation of cygwin and fetching `gnugo-3.2.tar.gz' you can type:

  tar zxvf gnugo-3.2.tar.gz
  cd gnugo-3.2

The generated executable is not a stand-alone executable: it needs cygwin1.dll that comes with the Cygwin environment. cygwin1.dll contains the emulation layer for Unix.

Optionally you can use glib to get a working version of snprintf. Glib builds out of the box on cygwin.
