  I recently try to port a unix C++ program with a lot of IPC calls (i.e. semget, shmget, msgget...etc) to Win2000. Is there any 3rd party enumulators/libraries of unix IPC for window??

Or cygwin or MKTools (don't know if that is the exact name at the moment...)

Cygwin is a complete UNIX look-alike environment for Windows. A great product if that is what you want. I am not sure about MKTools.

UWIN is a Windows port of UNIX Libraries.

MKS Toolkit provides you all your shells(including ssh) while maintaining portability of code.The real component of MKS that does it is NutCracker which runs as a service.

MKS is usually used for development in a pure Windows or mixed UNIX/Linux and Windows environment.
