I now have EPICS base-3.14.6 and asyn-4.0 building under Cygwin thanks.
However, my application won't build and complains of undefined references to
various devGpib functions (even though I have added the device driver and
asyn libs in the relevant Makefiles).
... undefined reference to `_devGpib_initAi'
... undefined reference to `_devGpib_readSi'
Any tips please?

Subject: RE: Asyn build under win32
asyn does not build under the win32-x86 architecture, for the reasons
you discovered. It uses the termios API for serial ports, and that does
not seem to be available under native Windows.
I am running quite a few IOCs on Windows machines now, for controlling
Roper CCD detectors, XIA spectroscopy detectors, and running small
laboratories with RS-232 motor controllers. I use the cygwin-x86
environment so that I can use asyn.
To develop applications with cygwin you need to install basic cygwin
plus "make", "gcc", "perl", "g++" and the "SUN rpc" package. However,
to run an application that has been built statically with cygwin-x86 you
only need to install the basic cygwin package on the target machine, and
that takes about 2 minutes. Really all it should need is to have
cygwin1.dll in your PATH on Windows.
With the exception of the message I posted to tech-talk yesterday about
some CA problems, I have had excellent experience with cygwin. I think
the problems I had yesterday should be viewed as an anomaly, perhaps due
to an errant application. Rebooting has fixed the problem, at least for
