 Inserting by hand was by first approach. But in the distribution
 that I made available, I used, to avoid legal problem, part of the
 header included in lcc-win32 which is freeware. Look to the
 file lcc.h in rgwnsrc.tgz.
 What is missing in the gnu header are the definitions of the 
 Edit_something macros and of some constants. 
 Observe that the use of the first ones can be avoid 
 if in the source we substitute them with the appropriate
 SendMessage calls.

 Perhaps, this is the best solution. Another portable toolkit which is small,
 only C not C++, and so easy to use is GraphApp.
