I installed and ran it this morning successfully.  The only thing that
seemed wierd to me was when 132col screen is activated rather than the
external window resizing as it should, the fonts internal to the window
resize to display everything in the exsisting window frame without a resize.
The only bad thing about this is when this happens the fonts become almost
too small to read without manually resizing the window frame.  Other than
that the install was smooth(except for WinZip's inability to handle a
tarball correctly - go figure) and hey now I have a gcc compatitable
compiler on my winblows box that is pretty cool anyway.  Thanks for all the
effort.

I have gotten a few illegal ops it seems to happen when I press one key (or
a combination of keys shft+tab etc) twice or three times really fast but if
I try to get it to crash by doing this on purpose it wont happen (go figure)
I'll keep an eye on it.

That could be the font...  Did you try any other fonts?  (i.e. with the
font_80 & font_132 keywords)

Try something like:

       font_80=Courier New
or
       font_80=Terminal

and tell me if that helps, or if it's something else?  (I've only tried
the emulator at 1024 x 768)

That'd be great.

(At this point I haven't done anything, the keys are hardcoded in the
source code for winterm.c)

I was thinking about this issue...  It'd be awfully nice to come up with
a way to do keyboard maps that would be consistent across all of the
different terminal objects -- but is that even possible?

The way the Linux/BSD/U**X terminals read keyboards and the way that
Windows reads keyboards is radically different.  (And I'm not sure about
GTK, yet, but I suspect it's more like Windows)

If possible, I'd like to end up with a nice little program where you can
simply pick which key to re-map, and then press the key you want to use.
Find a way to make this work with all interfaces, and it'd be ideal...

These are also hardcoded in the source of winterm.c.  It'd be reasonably
simple to read this from a file and set the values accordingly...  I just
haven't had time to do it yet.  Again, I'd like to find a way to make the
configuration consistent across platforms..

Thanks for the input!  Keep it coming... :)
