Hi -

I have been recently been trying to call functions in a DLL, and all the
functions are CDECL. This can only be done in VB with Matt Curland's book.
But why declare them like this in the first place? Do you gain advantages,
such as allowing optional parameters, or something?

Also, can somebody tell me how to go about figuring out parameters for unpublished
API calls? Does this require a debugger? And if so, can somebody give me
pointers about how I would go about doing this? Please take into account
that my assembly experience is limited to 8086, and even then it is a bit

Thanks a lot
