 Those samples use a binding to the Win32 API[1] that does not ship with

Ok.. I still don't understand why such a 'binding' is needed. Is std.c.windows.windows not enough for everyone?

Unfortunately, no. It is not a complete binding of the Win32 API. It has a lot of stuff, but if you need more you need to look elsewhere. Andrej hit on some of the deficiencies in his post.

Understood. I think I'll go with the binding. Thnk you.
