    Not really. The only time it would be a problem is if I forgot to set the default value, or used the wrong size for the type of value, in which case I'd have a bug whether it was initialized or not anyway.

    Well I think it's C code, there's so much windows'y stuff in there it's hard to tell.
    VC++ defaulting to a file type of .cpp doesn't help matters either.
    Yes, i am using VC++, yes I did make it a .cpp file, and yes I did intend to write my program in pure C. Maybe that's not such a good idea, but I really didn't want to have to give up function overloading.
