    Question int WINAPI or PASCAL?

    What's the difference between

    int PASCAL WinMain

    and

    int WINAPI WinMain

    ?

    They are just ways to send the parameters in order. Both, I believe, do the same. Not quite sure on that, but you can use them interchangably.

    I've always been taught to use WINAPI. Although, I've seen PASCAL code, and it's the same thing.

    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    use WINAPI, PASCAL is obsolete. It's only allowed for backwards compatibilty
