Supported PlatformsHere is a list of the platforms that each module included in the application package supports. I suspect that porting them to other Unix platforms should be reasonably straightforward. Should you do it, please forward the required changes (if any) to me.
In some cases, they might have felt that I took a long time before including their contribution in the main SMSLink archive. And they would be right. They might even wonder why I would bother working on the Win32 + Cygwin1 port I'm offering as of release 0.52b -- after all, there already provided me with two other native Win32 clients.
Well, the reason I wanted to provide "yet another" Win32-ish client program to SMSLink is the following. Both ClientSMS and send_sms are fine programs, but both require "commercial" development environments for the Windows platforms that are neither readily available everywhere, nor free. I'm talking about Visual Basic and Borland C++, respectively. It also happens that I don't have them. The advantage of the "Win32 + Cygwin1" port with this respect is that the Cygwin development environment is licensed under the GNU GPL, and I got it, which means that I can provide the candidate user with detailed compilation and install instructions.
That being said, those of you having easy access to all of those development environments can now choose the Win32 client that best suit their needs.
