    windows.h is for creating win32 programs.
    DJGPP is a protected mode DOS compiler.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    ah, that would be why I don't have it.

    Does Dev-C++ have it? I was thinking about switching to that anyway.
