PT 18-Jul-2003: Liboil can be built for windows using the mingw compiler. You need to get the SDL development library for mingw from the SDL site  and apply the following patch to the current Makefile in liboil. What you end up with is a oilsh shell. This isn't too good as an interactive shell under windows - but it does successfully run the oil scripts. Try the managers demo mentioned above.
To use this patch, copy it to a file and delete the leading single space (for instance, in emacs use M-x replace-regexp<RET>^ <RET><RET>). You'll need to edit the location of your SDLDIR - and the SDL include directory needs to be renamed from include to SDL (because all the #includes are for <SDL/xxxx.h>).

This has obviously nothing to do with libOil from http://www.schleef.org/liboil/ except the name collision (that seems to be their fault this time).
Is there anything for Tcl to gain from optimized inner loops library?
