We will be using Cygwin as our environment for C programming. Cygwin
provides many of the capabilities of Unix/Linux within a Windows environment.
Install Cygwin on your PC by going to the Cygwin web site, cygwin.com, clicking on the "install Cygwin
now" icon to download setup.exe, and then execute setup.exe to actually do
the installation. A number of web sites, such as http://www.physionet.org/physiotools/cygwin/
step you through the process. Besides the defaults, you should include
gcc-core (under Devel) and some editor, such as nano.
