Thanks, that would be great.

In the meantime, I have been experimenting a little bit with cygwin
(http://www.cygwin.com/), a GNU runtime environment for win32 platforms.

It seems that mcstas builds fine using the usual unix approach
(./configure;make;make install). I have not had the time to do any real
testing, I will report back to the list once I have done this.

The GUI tools (mcgui, mcplot etc.) is another matter, since I have not
found prebuild versions of PDL and PGPLOT, and compiling from sources does
not seem too successful. Anyway, using cygwin is an alternative approach
to running mcstas on windows platforms.

Regarding the GUI tools, the developer team is aiming at providing an
alternative solution to the current Tk/perl/PDL/PGPLOT solution with the
next release, since the current setup seems to cause problems on many

No deadline has been set so far for the next McStas release, watch the
status page http://neutron.risoe.dk/developments/status/
