I am having difficulty installing galib 2.4.5 on windows98 I have 
Microsoft Visual C++ installed.  I'm using the batch file method 
recommended for Windows 9x/NT compilation. I have changed gaconfig.h to 
include  #define NO_STREAMS

when I run make, the galib.lib seems to compile ok but the examples have 
much trouble. Two typical problems are :

ex25.C(50) : error C2679: binary '<<'  :  no operator defined which 
takes a right-hand operand of type 'const class GAGenome' (or there is 
no accepatble conversion)


LINK : fatal error LNK1104; cannot open file "libcmptd.lib"

The following lines are included in my autoexec.bat
set PATH=C:\Progra~1\Micros~3\VC98\BIN;%PATH%
set PATH=C:\Progra~1\Micros~3\Common\MsDev98\Bin;%PATH%
set PATH=C:\Progra~1\Micros~3\VC98\Include;%PATH%
set PATH=C:\Progra~1\Micros~3\VC98\Lib;%PATH%

where \Progra~1\Micros~3 expands to \Program files\Microsoft Visual Studio

please help me see the obvious
