OK Here is my ConceptGCC installation for dummies guide. Probably of most use to
myself :-)
And BTW that is as far as I have got so far. Will try to actually compile
something next!

Hurdle 1. Many Windows users are used to zip not bz2 files, so what do I do with

Use gzip ??options to unzip the source. I cant remember what this is! You also
need the Cygwin/bin directory in your non-Cygwin path to get gzip at the non
Cygwin command prompt

I used PKZip which IIRC I had to extend with something or other and then Use
tar -xf conceptgcc-VERSION.tar , hence I cant remember the gzip stuff.

(Replace with whatever the Cool form to extract tar.bzip2 files is)

Move the resulting 'opt' directory to your Cygwin installation. In my case

so the result is C:/Cygwin/opt

Head for Start>Control Panel.

Head for System>Advanced>Environment Variables.

Find 'Path' environment variable

Add The ConceptGcc bin directory e.g

Now check it works. Open a command prompt. (If you have Cygwin correctly
installed you shouldnt need to be in Cygwin shell)

type conceptg++.

If all is working ok you should get:

conceptg++: no input files


Next.. actually trying to compile something :-)
