Thanks for the info, David. Sorry that I didn't get back to you sooner. Christmas has me away from the computer.

You're right. I don't see a curl-config file in the windows version. I've tried downloading the source and doing a ./configure to generate the file, but keep running into road blocks. First, I needed g++, g77 openssl (for ssl support), etc. Not enough time to work through the kinks right now. I'll grab the cvs source and try again. I figured out the subdir thing with the curl header files. I assume that the libcurl.a library and other library files goe into the normal path, c:\mingw\lib\libcurl.a, and the binary files go into c:\mingw\bin? That's what I'll try, anyway. Get back to you as soon as I can. Merry Christmas.
