I've just made a discovery tonight about the libkernel32.a stub library
that comes with Mingw32. (At least the version I have, which is based on
It seems that this library may have been generated from a kernel32 DLL on
a non-Windows NT machine. The reason I say this is that my user-space
library, libpthread32, uses the Win32 API function
It's well documented that the ``TryEnterCriticalSection'' API function is
not available on Win32s and Win95/98. I don't know if that means that the
function doesn't exist in any library, or if the function should exist in
a library, but be implemented to return some error code at runtime. I
believe it is the latter. In which case, can anyone explain why this
function is missing from the kernel32 stub library?
For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"email@example.com" with one line of text: "help".
