Want for Win32

[ #896 ]

I should have mentioned this weeks ago. You can now get a binary distribution of the Want module for Win32. Download the two files from here into the same directory, and do ppm install Want-0.05.ppd. Many thanks to Daniel Berger for going to a lot of trouble to get this built. If you try it, let me know how it goes.

Now Windows users can participate in the context revolution too.

Daniel also pointed out that Want will fail if you try to use it from a subroutine which implements an overloaded operator. (People will try the strangest things.) It's going to be messy to fix, but I now once again have hope that it's possible. At the meeting on Thursday, I drunkenly explained the problem to Nicholas Clark, who proposed a startling but ingenious solution. "It's a crazy idea," I said, "but it might just work."
