Problem: I could not build the module. Api.xs has a variable that is undefined. I changed "na" to "PL_na" in lines 155, 250, and 262, and it then built and installed. It seems to work, ie I can now call functions, but I am way too novice to proceed. The author, Aldo Calpini, appears to have moved on.

the solution (or better, workaround for now) is to build the module with: perl Makefile.PL POLLUTE=1 make make test make install where 'make' is your flavour of it (make, nmake, dmake, ...). the source code was written at the time of perl 5.005, later 5.6 broke it in respect to PL_na. I'm currently working on a new release of Win32::API which will solve this situation. cheers, Aldo __END__ $_=q,just perl,,s, , another ,,s,$, hacker,,print;
