I believe that changing a config file is just great for that! Avoinding bloat is important

At most, there could be 2 or 3 sets of parameters, not only that would help but it can also serve as aguide for creating a new one

Skinning at the moment can only be done by modifying code (skin.c). I left it out because I do not know the best method of providing a decent configuration file without adding allot of code bloat. FLTK has a preferences widget (Fl_Preferences), which is a candidate. XML, JSON formats are other things to consider. I really don't know the direction to take for it. Suggestions are welcome.

    I like that :)

    Just one question: can default collors be configured? I would like
    something like "dialog" in Linux which has a gray background...

        Disclaimer: due to lack of C++ expertise, I may not do much
        with this.
        Nevertheless, here's some comments anyways (BTW, nice work so
        far):

        * Why bother with response file for simple uses of WLINK? Why
        not just
        use, e.g. "wlink op stack=4096 ...", etc.?

        * Compiling hello.cpp should normally output hello.exe, so
        explicitly
        using "-fe=" is redundant.

        * "-bt=DOS -l=DOS" is also redundant, use "-bcl" instead.

        * "ncurses compiling" says you're using "cpp" (C
        preprocessor), which
        can't be right. I assume "g++" here (or "gpp" for DJGPP).
