  • Question i was asked...(API)

    I had an email from a friend who wants help, sadly i cant help him but i was wondering if any of u guys could

    "there is much I would like to know about Windows (I have a Unix history) in particular about the API, and wonder if you are up to speed on this. I was digging today for a "Julian Date/Time" function like Unix has, and came to the conclusion that the nearest function, with 1ms precn., is broken re winter/summer time, and leap seconds - currently I am using a "time since boot" function as a real-time reference. Another one I need to chase is API functions for configuring the serial port - i.e. say "8bit, no parity" - at present I have to use a coms application to pre-set them - I have tried to use dos calls, that apparently set it identically, but that does not work."
    thank guys

    Don't take this the wrong way, but are you always your friend's bitch?

    (read: is he/she always unable to discover and learn for themselves?)

    Just curious.
