Where do I get Windows libpq and header files?

P: n/a
Hello

I have postgresql latest version running on RH 9. I
want to write a windows based application to interact
with postgresql server. For that I plan to use libpq
i.e. using C.

I can work with the linux version but try as I might I
am not able to locate a source for compiled ( static )
version of libpq and its header files for Windows.

Where can I get it?

Thanks in advance.

Did you try the "usual suspects"? The postgres mirrors have full source.
As far as I know the $POSTGRES/src/include files are (mostly)
cross-platform. The platform specific stuff is mostly created by the
configure scripts. The route I'd suggest is Cygwin:

By default you'll get more than you purely need this way, but its an easy
way to get the Postgres source (or the postgres binary for that matter if
you wanted to test your to-be-written client against a server running on the
development machine -- sometimes a handy thing).
