I am new to Win32 C programming, and I
see there is an non-standard token
between the "return type" token and
"function name" token, WINAPI, which
is defined as _stdcall, which Charles
Petzoid cites as an identifier to
specify the calling convention, as
to the stack, for the function call.
Since this token appears to me to be
non-standard C (according to K&R),
I am wondering where (and when) did
Msoft fully describe and specify the
correct forms for this "calling convention"
identifier? WINAPI is only one of
a set of identifiers, I suppose, and
I am wondering where did Msoft reveal
the specs for any identifier that might
be coded here? I assume the other
pre-coded possibilities are in one
of the windows headers, but that still
doesn't serve as a definitive and
formal specification for this
deviation from standard C.
(...is changing a standard a habit
with msoft? or what?... no reply needed)
