I'm writing a small application in D that requires several windows api calls. To
access these functions I need to define variables with data types defined in c
header files. So far I've only been able to do this implicitly, using methods
like typeof(), or using alternative data types. When I try writing something
like 

sockaddr_ variable name;

I get an error message during compilation saying sockaddr_ is an undeclared
identifyer.

You can convert C header files to D, so you will be able to use all structures
from these headers.

std.c.windows.winsock, and std.c.windows.com. You can also use std.socket, which abstracts away the platform specific socket stuff. Any declarations you need that aren't already declared in one of those modules you can declare yourself. Use the std.c.windows.* modules as examples.
