Any compiler does this, right?

That is precisely what I would like to do. But I am trying to find where to
start. I would like to start building only ONE of all Argyll's utilities
like, one of the "easiest". Once I understood how that one is put together,
which header files are required, what are all preprocessor directives do,
then I can move on to compiling the other more complex utilities. I spent
the better part of last night reviewing C and C++. Do you know wheter Argyll
uses any C++ contructs? Or is it strictly ANSI C?

That's an option I will look into. May prove to be a simpler environment. I
don't want to be bogged down in learning too complex IDE.

If Windows does not work for me then, yes, I'll move to OSX.

See, that's another possibility.

Sounds so easy :-)
