Anybody know what the diff is between _tmain() and plain old main()? Where can I read about it? obviously I haven't been too successful finding anything.
When things are preceded by _t, it indicates that the program wants it to use Unicode. Unicode is basically a different way than ASCII of storing characters and numbers. It takes up more memory, but also has characters that ASCII does not have. Searching google will provide lots of info.
its most likely a redefined main() for an api or something similar. SDL redefines your main to SDLmain() or so. mybe you should look for the "t" api or something. i heard some peole talking about some "t" thing on irc. maybe you should check the stl references.
beat me to it!! your answer seems a bit more .... correct .
