First of all, thank you for the reference.
Regarding the missing flag to TranslateCharsetInfo - My VisualStudio 6
MSDN DVD (Latest that came up for that version - dated October 2001)
does not have this flag mentioned. This means either that the flag was
not present at that time, or that it was present but they forgot to
mention it (has happened to me before).
The latest MSDN
does mention it, and claims it's available on Windows 2000 (like you
said). I guess this is anyone's guess what this means as far as when you
can use it.
Fortunetly for Wine, we don't care when it was introduced. If Wine has
it, we can use it. At least for code written by us, that rule is fine.
So, thank you very much for the good advice. Are you a wine user that
needs this flag, or did you just happen to see my email when you were
investigating a Win32 problem?
