The env.bat script, which we had provided in earlier version, was mainly 
intended for users of Borland C++ 5.5 (the free command line version). 
However, ac++ & bc55 had never worked really well together and 
supporting this platform, which is not very common, takes a lot of time. 
Therefore, bc55 support is not continued and the script was removed.

examples.bat is a very simple script that only calls ac++ to transform 
each of the examples from AspectC++ into C++. It's up to you to call 
your compiler. Note that for running ac++ you have to write a parser 
configuration file on your own. The two *.cfg files are examples. It has 
to define all predefined macros of your C++ compiler with "-D..." and 
all standard include paths with "-I...". Without this file ac++ will not 
be able to parse your code.

If you use g++ and make under Windows things are easier. Refer to README 
and not README.win32 und use the Makefile to tranform, compile, and run 
the examples. Together with the ACDT (Eclipse Plugin from 
acdt.aspectc.org) it becomes fun, because the ACDT generates the 
Makefile and visualizes join points.

If you use VC++ the easiest way to compile AspectC++ programs is to 
download the Visual Studio Add-In by pure-systems 
(www.pure-systems.com). A trial version is available for free. You might 
also have a look at their parser configuration file.

I hope this helps. If not, tell me more.
