 Hi Tilman,

 I just found out that there seems to be a possibility
 to use cln/ginac under win32.
 Please, can you (or anyone else listening to the list) tell me

 + what to do (and how long it will take)
 + whether there are any files etc. downloadable anywhere

 in order to get ginac running under win (preferably without
 the cygwin-dll, i.e. in the way you described in your mail.)
 Hopefully, that's another step to convince the "Skip C++,
 use Mathematica/Maple/whatever instead" people around here ;-) 

 - Roland
