[Ecls-list] Suggestion on Build Instruction for MSVC on windows

I would just like to make this suggestion. Instead of saying to set the
appropriate system variables you can simply start the visual studio 2008
Command Prompt, which sets up the environmental variables, and type this in.
Useful if you have just installed MSVC and want to permanently set
environmental vars.


setx path "%path%"

setx lib "%lib%"

setx include "%include%"


This adds the path, lib, and include variables permanently to the
environmental variables. In my case, it used the user variables not the
system variables. And since the visual studio 2008 does not overwrite any
values already set in the environmental variables, it should be safe.
