Christof regarding your terrific notes on using the Microsoft SDK with Digital
Mars,

http://cmeerw.org/prog/dm/ms_sdk.html

Is it necessary to use Microsoft's linker for the library conversions?  Walter
what do you think?  I just downloaded the latest SDK.  There is no bin\link.exe
file.  The only link.exe I have from that download is

C:\MicrosoftSDK\Bin\win64\link.exe

which would seem to be a Windows 64-bit specialty, not a standard linker for
Win32.

It would be really nice to find a way to use the SDK under DMC without any need
for Microsoft tools.

You can get Microsoft's linker from the Windows 98 DDK, see http://users.easystreet.com/jkirwan/pctools.html (you need http://www.microsoft.com/ddk/download/98/BINS_DDK.EXE and http://www.microsoft.com/ddk/download/98/98SETUP.EXE). bye, Christof -- http://cmeerw.org JID: cmeerw jabber.at mailto cmeerw at web.de ...and what have you contributed to the Net?

OK Christof, just add those links to your web page then.  It would be helpful to
people who don't own MSVC and are unfamiliar with SDKs.

Walter you should link over to Christof's site from the home page.  This is
useful information about compatibility with Boost, STL, and Microsoft SDK.

Thanks Christof,
Mark
