How can I implement the paradigm demonstrated by the code below to run on WinXP?
I want to fork a process or create a thread that shares global variables with the parent process/thread.

Thanks for the pointers and explanation. Actually, the quote that does it for me, albeit non-authoritative, is from the wiki page, to wit:
``Visual C++ will not compile anything before the...

I have two problems with the code below:
1. I cannot find a header file to #include that has the sleep function prototype.
2. When I add my own sleep function prototype, I get an unresolved...

Thanks. Including <windows.h> does eliminate the error.

I routinely compile with #define _CRT_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS.
When I put before the first #include in my main (and only) module, I get a compile-time warning or error. (I don't rememeber which.)

The original declaration was _TCHAR* argv, which declares argv as pointer to strings of wide chars (wchar_t).
And sure enough, when I revert to that declaration,...

int _tmain(int argc, char* argv)
printf("drive name: %s\n", argv);
It displays only the first character of the first argument on the command line.
Yet the following works...
