My procmail process becomes crazy and it seems that I cannot send message to

I try one more time. I aplogize if you have already received the following

About STk port on Win95.

The file you have found in the incoming directory was done by R. Alexander
Milowski from Copernican Solutions. If I remember, it uses Tk 4.1a2 for
the Tk part.

Some students have begun a port with the Gnu Win32 which was not usable. The
system was not reliable enough, and I think we can't use it.

BTW, and contrary to what I have already said to some people (and perhaps also
on the mailing list). I have started to port STk on windows. I have started
the port at the beginning of last week and I have for now snow (with the new
STklos) which is running quite well. I have not tried to port the gnu MP, so I
used the freegmp library for bignums.
I have tried to convert all the systems dependancies ("\\" instead of "/",
time functions which are different, ....). Everything seems correct (but more
tests are needed surely).
Concerning stk (i.e. the integration of Tk), it begins to work. I hope to have
something in a few days (if I find time since I have a lot of students
homeworks to correct :). As aoon as something is running, I will place it on

Ah, the compiler I use is BC++ 4.5. We have bought it with an educationnal
license. Does someone know if I can distribute binaries with this kid of

PS: Fritz, is it possible for you to compile STk with VC++ before a final
