Subject: Can DEMACS works under MS-Windows?

>Is anyone working on porting djgpp to NT (or should I start ...)?

NT does not provide the proper interface to allow go32 to interface
with it, no matter how much time you spent porting.  The only way to
get gcc running under NT is to build it with NT's compiler.  Same for
emacs.  djgpp is strictly for DOS and DESQview.  Note that is
Microsoft comes to their senses and decides to support DPMI 1.0, it
will become feasible to port go32 to windows.
