Dear Thomas and Denis,
I know people is using the PPL under Windows using
Cygwin and MinGW, but I have no information about
compiling the PPL with Visual Studio C++.
The PPL is written in standard C++ so, if
Visual Studio C++ implements a large enough portion
of the standard ---something I don't know---,
it should be doable. It would probably not be trivial:
the configuration file should be written (I guess)
without the help of the automatic configuration script;
likewise for the automatic generation of make files.
If you need help, please let us know (notice though
that we do not use Windows and have no access to
any recent version of Visual Studio C++).
All the best,
