Is there some documentation available? I tried to compile my application
with g++ and linked it with winelib, but it segfaulted when it called
winapi functions. So the only way i got my program working was using

There are some missing types and some redefined types. I think this is
because Common C++ wasn`t written with wine in mind. Is there a way to
get this working without teaching Common C++ that it is possible to have
winapi on linux?
