    It won't work with MinGW. Having the MS SDK on hand is good for extracting any definitions that aren't in the MinGW Win32API headers.

    Yeah but that is wrong. Like you said in C++ they aren't macros, they are keywords.


    Thanks everyone.

    I'm going to agree that it's bad. If it's in the standard, they should exist. Bad Microsoft.
    I'm actually with you on this one
