Hi folks,
I am monitoring this list for a few days, and I am surprised about the
quality of the answers. Although my question might not be related to
DJGPP, maybe someone can help me.

I wrote a text analysis program in C and want to port it to other
operating systems like Windows (what insane naughty dull other working
stuff), Windows/9?, and Unix (Linus and/or DEC Ultrix). Also OS/2 would
be great. I have been looking for books (Petzold e.g.) and tools to make
porting effective. My idea is that the code should consist of one source
where the different operating systems parts are handled with DEFINEs and
IFs. I heard about ZINC, XVT, and WindowsMaker that support multiple
GUIs. And of course GNU C is available for many platforms. So what can I
do, does somewhere reading this know some books, software or anything
else which helps me? BTW, I am currently using Symantec C/C++ version 7.0
and starting to learn GNU C.

thanks in advance --
