they're evil because they force me, the innocent user, to use square brackets for accessing variables. And the '[' and ']' are very hard to type in on German keyboards.

It isn't "the compiler", but CygWin and MinGW want to provide a full environment with shell, make, gcc and this other lunix crap.

MS-DOS forever!
