Gosh...darn it!! Thanks ikegami. I thought it might be that.

So is there no way of writing/testing code on Linux to run on Windows? (my ide complains that the module is not installed)

....and even worse, no way of making system calls from Linux to Win32 machines across a network!?!?

    Some services (such as NFS and MS File Sharing, and X and Remote Desktop) give access to some system calls indirectly, but I've never heard of making system calls accross a network, no matter what the OS.

    If anything, Windows is the most open to this. Remote file access, remote registry editing, DCOM, etc. The number of entry points is insane.

    By the way, you could always create a small module that satifies your IDE. It doesn't actually have to do anything.

      Ok. Thanks again for the help and advice on the module to con the IDE.
      I was trying to help another node, I'll try to get the old virtual windows machine up and running.
      Thanks again everybody!!

    telnet, ssh, or some other protocol that requires some service to be running on the Win32 machine.
