Feature request: bug for Windows introduced by Linux
Creation by the Linux-based Pliant installation of a file creating a bug under windows.

|When as me you work both with Linux and windows on the same computer,
you have the oportunity of sharing a lot of Plaint files.
Specialy it is interesting to share Pliant_data and pliant_ security.
In the old time there was no problem but since the xx-relese (I dont know exactly y the number),
the installation under Linux create in pliant_security a file named " computer.pdb".
When you come back to Windows and launch tn HTTP server you get the message:
PLIANT a causé une défaillance de page dans
le module ZLIB.DLL à 0167:02178553.
the solution for the moment is to rename the file but is it a possibility for windows to ignore that file ?
Perhaps I am the only user of Pliant in double boot configuration ..

|I've uploaded http://pliant.cx/archive/pliant-78pre1.zip
that contains a zlib DLL that seems to works at last under Win32.
Could you test it through typing something like:
pliant module /pliant/sample/zlib.pli

|Just another question:
where can I find a properly precompiled libjeg.dll to test and include
- if ever it works - in the Win32 Pliant tarball.

|Test of Zlib with release 78 :
The final message is
"gzip compression works fine " !

This one is a major improvement for Win32 users:
it contains zlib and libjpeg libraries (the only parts used by Pliant that are
note native Pliant programs) properly compiled from source for Win32.
Took me one day of hard boring work to compile these from source with the proper
calling convention :-(
So, now all main Pliant features should be available to Win32 users as well.
Please test and report success or failure.
PS: I've also forced the compression from deflate to gzip when ie browser is detected.

|Rather use http://pliant.cx/archive/pliant-78pre3.zip
which will enable zlib compression in the HTTP server and database engine.

|For now succes is complete.
What advanced test can I do to improve ?
PS To make return test I wait for the equivalent .tgz

Probably none is required.
As soon as I've solved the library interface under Win32, all features that
required heavy testing are probably the same on Linux and Win32 and since
Heliogroup is now doing heavy production with Pliant graphic library, I considere
it as production quality.
I plan to introduce a end user targeted photo retouching and printing tool in
a fiew weeks that should work both on Win32 and Unix.
Also it will be usefull only for people that do have a modern Epson stylus
