You need one of:
msc: Microsoft Visual C++
bcc32: 32 bit Borland C
win32: 32 bit Borland C, Hugs for Windows
according to hugs98/Install, but I don't have any of them.
I use Windows for playing games mostly. Maybe NUM_FIXUPS
can be increased a little to say 1000 in the normal
distribution, I don't know how much this would slow
Hugs down ?
