71    For a non-Unix system, read the comments in the file NON-UNIX-USE, though if
72    the system supports the use of "configure" and "make" you may be able to build
73    PCRE in the same way as for Unix systems.
74    
75    PCRE has been compiled on Windows systems and on Macintoshes, but I don't know
76    the details because I don't use those systems. It should be straightforward to
77    build PCRE on any system that has a Standard C compiler and library, because it
78    uses only Standard C functions.
