C Header Files
« on: May 07, 2018, 10:13:01 PM »
I'm confused. If O2 can use C header files as include files, why isn't this feature being used to access the WinAPI rather than using the O2 skeleton include files users are struggling with now?

Hi John,

A full set of API C headers is very large. The major difference is that type mismatches are not detected at compile-time. So the programmer must be thorough in looking up the descriptions of unfamiliar calls.
