    posix for visual c++ 6

    currently whenever I want to compile posix code i use Cygwin.. but I'd really like to use Ms VC++ 6 so I can benefit of it's workspaces and debuger... Does anyone know anything about any port of posix that can be inserted in MSVC++ libs ?

    Are you using one of the proper MS operating systems, like 2K/XP ?

    MS do provide a "posix" layer for these somewhere, though I don't know the details of exactly what you need.

    Some kind of SDK IIRC.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Xp obviously... I know that there is a POSIX layer, but I want the proper libs to place in the compiler dirs.

    I think the replacement for the posix layer is SFU. Also check out UWIN.

    SFU Overview
    Services For Unix
    UWIN

    I don't like sfu.. i've used quite a bit, then I changed to cygwin.
    It seems that uwin is what I'm looking for
    Thank you very much
