CIN creation using Metrowerks Codewarrior for WinNT

Hi
I am new to LABVIEW,
I am trying to call a C program from LABVIEW.
I have got the manual from the NI site for building CINs, but the
procedures seem to be tailored for specific compilers such as MS VC++. Can
anybody give me step by step instructions to build a CIN using Metrowerks
Codewarrior for WinNT or turboc++?

Thanks in advance

The CIN is a LV specific library, but a DLL is a widely used standard. Also,
there is very little that A CIN can do that a DLL can't.

I'd say that the best thing to do is to build a DLL using the compiler
that you have and using the Call Library node instead of the CIN node to call
into the DLL.
