Hi Erick,
        Thanks for your recent assurances regarding the Win32 port. For me,
at least, portability is crucial. Here are some things I found in fixing
the file globbing on Win32 (in version 3.1.1).

* stk.h should include <math.h> *outside* of the extern "C" environment.

* The macro "isDrive" (or something like that) is incorrect. It checks
  *(p+1) to see if it is ":" (it should check *(p+2)).

* Many changes are needed in unix.c and filebox.stklos.

* Some new file opening and globbing logic is needed. Jay Krell worked
  out a lot of this.

* init.stk initializes the *load-path* variable incorrectly.

-------------------new wishes---------------------------------------

* <ctrl-c> exits the program in Win32. Can we catch that signal in

* The output buffering is strange in Win32. The next prompt is printed
  before the return value of the previous command.

* Are there commands to get a list of available drives in Windows?

Jon B.
