This is what [Norman Vine <>] recommends for general
Cygwin development.

Note: This will be a Unix like system and not a Windows IDE It is
expected that the user is comfortable using a unix development
environment, the gnu gcc compiler, and its asociated tools.
Alternatively if you don't mind typing commands from a command line
and reading instrunctions you should have a very good chance of

1) Latest Cygwin release

   Install the Cygwin toolkit by clicking on the "Install Cygwin Now"
   link at

2) Building from source

   Follow the instructions for building on Linux.

   Your OpenGl libraries will be automatically installed
   and you can ignore that section of the Linux readme.

Any additional questions can be directed to Norman Vine <>
since he thinks this terse document is all you'll need. :-)
