[PD] grid arguments?

While I feel pretty confident in Pd, I am not sure if I have the skills to compile the linux version for windows... unless the procedure is pretty simple. How does one go about compiling Linux externals for windows (assuming it would only take middling computer skills)?

Anyway, thanks for the help!

    I am running Pd on windows. I have downloaded the Grid external and am trying to adjust the values and the geometry of the GUI. Unfortunately, I can't right click on the abject to adjust the properties, as grid was designed to do. I noticed that grid can take initial arguments to set these properties, and so far, I have figured out what some of them are. For instance, when I write this object:

    grid grid1 200 -100 100 100 - 50 50 1 1 1 4 2 202 332

    I know I'll get a grid of 200 width, 100 height, with x values ranging from -100 to 100, y values from -50 to 50. In other words, I know these arguments:

    grid <grid name> <width> <x-minimim> <x-maximum> <height> <y-minimum> <y-maximum> <??> <??> <??> <number of lines - x> <number of lines - y> <??> <??>
  grid <grid name> <width> <x_min> <x_max> <height> <y_min> <y_max> <showing grid flag> <x_step> <y_step> <x_lines> <y_lines> <x_current> <y_current>

  but you should be able to edit all of these with the properties dialog,
  it simply doesn't work on windows because the compiled version
  is for pd-0.36.
  take latest release from linux and compile it for windows,
  you'll get properties in pd 0.37 also.


    Am I right about this? Does anyone know what the other arguments are? Does this question make any sense? Please help!
