Not at all. I did not interpret your email that way. I think
we are making great progress.

I am very optimistic.

Wonderful. I would like to get a full update of the build.
It tried piecing it together from the files that you sent
earlier, but I seem to be missing something. Perhaps you
could do a repeat of the original upload to axiom-developer.org
and Tim could re-build the axiom--windows--1 branch. If you
do this, let me know and I will grab the tarball directly
from axiom-developer.

I suggest that before doing the next upload of that kind, that
you first prune all of the unnecessary cruft from the zips
directory. Only the gcl-2.6.5.tgz and gcl-2.6.5 patch files
are relevant to the windows build.

BTW, when you access axiom-developer from windows do you use
putty and psftp?


I have found these programs to be especially reliable - much
better than just the ports of ssh and sftp and scp that I have
also used under cygwin and MSYS. In particular psftp has the
ability to re-start a download or upload (reget, reput) and that
has saved me a lot of time - especially upload where I still have
to live by the limitations of slow modem connections.
