Re: swish-e compiling for windows using visual c++

Yes, adding all the .h and .c files appeared to work in that I got an .exe
file.  I also got 48 warnings in regard to the regex.c file.  I haven't
tested the .exe file, but I am doubtful.

I am not sure what you are referring to when you talk about the "MinGW32",
but I bet I can find info about that online.

SWISH-E 2.0.5:  Create a new console project then add all the *.c and
*.h files from the src and src/win32 directory.  Press F10.  I think
that should work although you might need to change some compiler

MSVC6 project files from 2.0.4 (goes in root of project directory):

SWISH-E 2.2:  Open MSVC6 workspace and press F10.
SWISH-E 2.3:  Open MSVC6 workspace, press F10, cross fingers.
              Or install MinGW32 and run the configure script.

I don't believe I ever made a Windows build of 2.0.5.  I think maybe
2.0.5 was a bug fix which was already fixed in the newer Windows builds.
