Unsecured API functions

I was writing up a Hello World with input program for a demonstration
for a non-developer coworker last week, and used the unsecured getch()
and got the standard warning about how it was unsecured and dangerous
to use that.  That prompted me to look up the basic secured functions
on the MS website, and compare to wine code.  According to MSDN,
things like gets have been replaced with gets_s.  However, as far as I
can tell, wine still only implements gets for Windows programs to
use..  Do we implement secured versions of other functions, and if
not, how come?



Check out this new 3D Instant Messenger called IMVU.  It's the best I
have seen yet!
