c++.windows.32-bits - IMPLIB for system DLL's with JK's version

I don't know what the DMC policy is but I think Jan Knepper's modified version
of Implib (www.digitalmars.com/~jan/) should be folded into the regular
distribution.  The ability to append the  # (ie.  4,  8, ...) to functions is
vital if you need to use some older "system" DLL's.  A newbie might have a hard
time without this tool.  I used it to generate a .DEF file with the correct pre-
and post-pend to the names ("_" and  #), and then used the regular IMPLIB to
generate the import .LIB from the .DEF file.  Note: For some reason the
librarian listing command, "lib -l", did not work on the output.
Thanks Jan!
Just my $0.02.
