[Haskell-cafe] HP/Cygwin and Curl

Thanks Stephen--that was related to my original question, about using HP
with Cygwin. The answer seems to be No!--you must use MSYS (for real work).

Or am I just being very slow? (I probably am--sorry!)

Hi Chris

I don't know what's going on there, are you using the Windows CLI and then
working with GHC's mingw?

GHC (and thus the Haskell Platform) does ship with a minimal version of
MinGW - includes files, static libraries, gcc, linker etc. - as GHC needs
these pieces in its tool chain, and it means you can use GHC with the
regular Windows CLI. For 'real work' though, you want to be using a full
MSYS / MinGW installation and the MSYS Bash shell.
