    Post What's the meaning of run-time macro

    When I look up MSDN today, I see the term "run-time macros". For example, "For flexibility, use run-time macros such as _tcschr and _tcscpy when possible. " in the chapter "General MBCS Programming Advice". I often use the macros such as _tcscpy, _tcschr, etc. But I can't understand the term "run-time". Since these macros are solved on compile-time, why use run-time here?

    The term "run-time macros" is indeed misleading. What they actually meant is "macros which expand to different functions inside the run-time library".
