If you didn't already ... have a look at cygwin, I use it to run some unix utillities and it seems pretty complete.

@ Blue Hell -- You mean, run a version compiled for Linux using cygwin? I have no idea if that would work or not -- I don't think anybody's tried it.

To run with emacs natively on Windows, the missing piece is a sclang executable compiled for Windows. The package available for download bundles the language and a Python-based front end into one executable, and if you check out the source from svn and follow the Windows build instructions, you'll get the same thing. Emacs would need the language back end by itself.

In theory it should be possible to build in Windows using mingw and the supercollider scons script, but probably several changes in the sconstruct would be needed. I wanted to have a look at this some months ago, but didn't have time and also realized pretty quickly I don't have the developer chops for that job.

Another alternative would be to set up a Linux partition on your PC, or get a little Linux net book to get your feet wet. Dan Stowell on the sc list runs scemacs on an EEE pc for fun... I saw it at the last SC symposium. Nifty!

No, I really would not know if such would be possible (I assume getting audio out would be troublesome), but emacs in cygwin could be used to edit files ... so I was zooming in on the non-native escape that was left open in the question.

it's as i suspected then.

i run cygwin/x on my machine so logging in to my school server is easier, but emacs and xemacs both have windows versions. so far i've been using the smalltalk mode for editing SC scripts (i added '.sc' to the recognized extensions in for the mode), which works fine in my very limited experience.

just to say that you can get a proper sclang mode on windows emacs. i haven't the inclination to make it communicate with the SC server, but having proper tabbing, etc, is great.

downlad all the .el files from https://supercollider.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/supercollider/trunk/editors/scel/ (had to right click on each file! stupid windoze), install the .el files into your emacs/lisp/progmodes/ folder (one had to be renamed from a .el.in to .el), and add the line, (require 'sclang), to your .emacs file.

now i have sclang mode when i open a .sc file. it recognizes ^C ^C commands and such, but, of course, they don't do anything, at least not now.
