    Windows Error checking

    Was having hard time finding this but I know I've seen it before.

    It's a macro you can call a HRESULT function from and if it returns an error during program execution it gives you good debug information.

    I remember it being something like this

    CHECK_FOR_SUCCESS(functionCall(...));

    I remember having learned about it in a win32 api tutorial but I've forgoten it and can't rememebr what it was.

    You aren't thinking about the FAILED( ) macro are you? That is a generic check for failure macro.

    I remember now, called the Verify() macro, but I think that's only for use with MFC??
