I had problems with the header from microsoft because gcc didn't like
unions or structs. I had to delete all these structs and thus make every
allocated for. And when I linked the example you mentioned with libwinmm
the sound of Petzold could be heard at last! =)

I would also like to ask a general question about headers to everyone
that reads
this. I'm not a legal guru and therefore I was  wondering what the
restrictions are
to take the Microsoft headers and change them a bit? (stupid question
maybe, but as
I said I have no idea whatsoever about copyright in this context).


For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
