I refuse to do anything more in dos > batch files :) Hello Jason, Sometimes ago, I managed to cross-compile and test PARI on MinGW on the pari host, and I have report that it is possible to build PARI on MinGW using MSYS. So I wonder: instead of fighting with cmd.com, why not use MSYS to build pari with MSVC ? This should make the task significantly easier. Cheers, Bill.
