cmaeda@alum.mit.edu's tools seemed aimed at development for the
Windows market.

I wonder if the GNU tools shine better in the Unix market, then
hardware vendor supplied or 3rd party tools.  It's clear that ghost
Deutsch feels they don't for his Ghostscript work on Linux.

Further comments?

thanx either way -len           http://www.ai.mit.edu/~tower/home.html
