    Only if you want to...

    One can easily prevent buffer overruns using the standard C/C++ libraries. Those are just API's that enforce it, so you don't have too.

    I want to move over to using the strsafe functions. They are far superior to the woefully crap strn*** functions.

    The only query I have is the availability on different compilers. Is there a working implementation of the strsafe functions for Dev C++?

    StrSafe function support:

    MSVC: Yes
    LCC-WIN32: Yes

    Dev C++/Windows gcc: ???
    Borland C++: ???

    Everyone should read this:
