Name        : mingw32-crossreport
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 8
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/MinGW
Summary     : Analysis tool to help cross-compilation to Windows
Description :
CrossReport is a tool to help you analyze the APIs used by a compiled
Linux program, in order to work out the effort required to
cross-compile that program for Windows, using the Fedora MinGW

The simplest way to use it is to point it at an existing Linux binary,
and then read the generated report.

What it does in more detail: It looks at the libraries and API calls
used by the Linux binary, and compares them to the libraries and API
calls that we currently support under the Fedora MinGW cross-compiler.
It then works out what is missing, and produces a report suggesting
the amount of work that needs to be done to port the program.  For
example, whether whole libraries need to be ported first, and/or how
to substitute individual calls to work on Windows.

Update Information:
