Hello list,

I have been reading stuff about charm for some time, and just checked out the
git repo to have a play around. In principle I'm interested in implementing a
shared memory filesystem driver for hdf5 using charm - in particular I am
intrigued by the multi-phase array library which seems like what I wanted to
write myself, but you've already done the most of it.

My initial disappointment is that you don't use a build system like cmake. I
am a sad individual and like to use visual studio on the desktop workstation
because of its nice debugger and IDE.

Before I play around / start trying to cmakeify charm++, has anyone already
started something similar and would I be wasting my time if I did. (i.e.
would it work anyway - I see that you support Cygwin so it ought to work
under native windows with some tweaks).

thanks for any info
