[mercury-users] I am not able to compile Mercury 0.13.1

Hi, Julien.
Can I send a (somewhat) large package to the list? There is another issue. My main interest is the use of Mercury on Windows. I believe that Windows programmers find little support if they want to use Mercury. One must understand that people who work with Windows are not used to compile from sources; they need binaries.  Besides this, if one works with a Graphical User Interface, Mercury requires a dos box to function properly; programs compiled without the dos box are not launched.

 From previous email exchanges with Fergus, I know that this lack of Windows support is due to limited manpower. I would like to propose the formation of a work group to offer binaries for Windows, and add good GUI libraries to the (Windows) distribution. For the time being, I will send one of my packages to the list for comments.

This list would be as good a place as any.
