You'll have better luck asking about this on


None of the Python spreadmodule developers use Cygwin routinely, so we've
never tried it (it was developed and tested w/ MSVC 6 -- not for any
philosophical reason, just because wrestling with one compiler is bother
enough <wink>).

Tell me which version of Python you're using (like 2.1.3 or 2.2.1) and I'll
send you one (Python extension modules on Windows have to match the
major.minor  release level of the Python you're using).  2.2.1 is
recommended, BTW.

Again, bring this up on the Python newsgroup instead, and you should get
some good help quickly.
