Try cross-compiling with gcc.
How? You mean gcc on Linux can make windows EXE?
Well when you put it that way I don't know! It

I'm suddenly confused.
GCC is a crosscompiler, so that you can presumably
make it generate PE format Win32 executables. check
man gcc for details.
Sorry I forgot to mention Cygwin. I checked it out
it doesnt support msg queues either. Or did I miss
Or they are named differently?
That's a possibility. What's a message queue? If
it's a data
structure, then naturally you have to write it in
Message queues are a UNIX System V IPC mechanism, and
as such are not a part of gcc or any other compiler
RTL. They are an IPC facility provided hy the OS, and
(at least I think) are not available on Win32 systems.
I would suggest that you implement named pipes or
mailslots, or use some higher level IPC mechanism such
as COM (if you're into C++ and masochism), for this
purpose. If you're looking for a lower level system
on Win32, you can use sockets or even (horrors) DDE.
Anyway, I will check my Win32 documentation today to
see if Windows provides a message queue mechanism and
will mail the list if it does.
