Who said anything about "Word-for-word copying"?  Or were you only
refering to the inclusion of M$ source in the email?  I believe I already
stated I'd be re-writing the example to better suit a posix environment,
anyways.  I simply want the theory behind the example.  I'll derive my
own implementation from it.

And using standard posix C calls to read the file is exactly what I'll be
doing.  However, I need to see how I can include the Windows specific
structures.  That's the real magic behind this little example... well,
that and making zsh use it :)
