Has anyone had luck using the free Cygnus C/C++ compiler
( to create a dll that could be
accessed with S-Plus 4 or 4.5? What are the tricks?

Thank you for your responses regarding which C compiler to use with Splus.

I just went to the computer store of our university and found out that
Watcom C++ Version 11.0 is about $ 408 (Canadian) and Microsoft Visual C
++ 5.0 is only $ 125 (academic price). Since I am in a hurry to execute
several C codes and since I could afford to buy the Microsoft but not the
Watcom product from my research grant, there was no choice. I hope I will
not run into too many "glitches".

ThanX again.
