I have never seen a good answer to this, but how do you compile tut5 (x86) for cygwin gcc?

I want to develop in gcc just like MSVC++. I know MSVC is free, but I cant use it, only cygwin.

Press releases show it is possible, but where are the instructions?

While we use cygwin to run the various Makefiles to generate Salvo libraries, we've never tried to write a context switcher for gcc x86. It is likely that it would be different from the one for MSVC.

If you are a Salvo Pro user I'm happy to forward you the source code for the MSVC context switcher, and you can try to get it to work under gcc.
