    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    
    int main() {
    MSG message;
    while( GetMessage(&message, NULL, 0, 0) > 0 ) {
     }
    return 0;
    }
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    You still need a window of sorts to actually have messages sent to...

    What exactly are you trying to do?

    Hi Fordy,

    i want to create a intermediate winsock application running in hidden window mode and console application will call this intermediate application. I require hidden window to send immediate WSSASyncSelect() notifications to console application.
    Is it possible.
