Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 x86-32 cygwin binary (pdcurses):     (1.3M) SIGN
The unzip the zip file in c:\ (with create subdirectories enabled). bed.exe and cygwin1.dll end up in c:\windows other files in c:\Program Files\bed. If you like to use x:\Program Files\bed instead (with x another drive number), you should load a copy of bed.exe in bed.exe and change every occurrence of c/Program Files to x/Program Files and every occurrence of c:\Program Files to x:\Program Files (using replace: Alt-e,e).
cygwin1.dll is now included in the zip file (source cygwin-1.7.5-1-src.tar.bz2). One and only one exemplar of cygwin1.dll should be in a directory included in PATH. Using multiple copies gives problems. Using a cygwin1.dll version very different from 1.7.5-1 is also likely to give problems. Cygwin doesn't seems to have any solutions for this, but I just didn't know any other POSIX library for win32 I could use. If you want to run the MS Windows version of bed within xterm or rxvt, download also the following package and put bedn.exe in c:\Program Files\bed     (252K) SIGN
You can also rename bedn.exe to bed.exe and put it in c:\windows, so that you can't use the pdcurses version anymore. You still need for other installation files.
WARNING: As in all cases where other cygwin programs are installed, when you use the ncurses version it is absolutely nessessary to remove cygwin1.dll out of c:\windows and to rely entirely on /bin/cygwin1.dll
Be carefull never to start bed in a directory where another cygwin1.dll is lying around.
Except for the need to download ncurses from cygwin and have a base cygwin installation, I didn't notice the shortcomings of the previous ncurses versions when running bed in
