First off, I was wondering whether Gap is available for Windows on a PC.
>From what I can gather with our copy, obtained from ftp://archives.math.utk.edu,it is simply EXECUTABLE from Windows. Is this correct? If it is not available
for Windows yet, when do the creators think they will have it ready for Windows?My second question is very related. When executing 'gap.bat' from Windows in
the "gap3r4p1\bin" directory, gap compiles, but just before it gives the "gap>"
prompt, it gives the error message "Error, can't read from "/RUN". What is
"/RUN"? Is it something I should be worried about? Do you know how I can
fix the error?

One last question... When attempting to install Gap on our IBM-486 machine,
with DOS 6.2 and Windows 3.1, the computer gave a message which said that
the CPU must be in REAL mode, and that extended memory shouldn't be disabled.
So I rebooted the machine and held SHIFT at the appropriate time so that it
wouldn't execute the AUTOEXEC.bat file. Then Gap was installed without any
problems. Further more, I can RUN Gap without having to do the SHIFT trick.
Can you tell me what was happening there? Do I have an old version of Gap?
It is Version 3.4.

Thank you for your help.
