My latest article in NTInsider
A bit late perhaps, but my latest article on API development got published in the NTInsider (owned by OSR Online).
The online version can be found here. It requires free registration.
I know that at least 2 people have read it completely, because that is the number of mails I got to tell me I missed something.
- In the code example at the bottom, I acidentally switched the names of fooA and fooB in the declaration. Doh!
- That same code, compiled for a 64 bit platform, gives a linker warning. I don't know how I missed that. This code was made using VS2005, so one of two things could have happened: VC2005 didn't report the warning (unlikely), or I only checked the compilation in detail, and then only checked if the function was exported without checking if there were linker warnings. It's probably the latter.
I'll see if I can get these errata published. But at least now I know that people actually read my articles and use the code. Well, at least one person is using the code :) I'll have to make an extra effort next time to verify that a) I didn't make a stupid type, and b) There are no warnings anywhere.
