    Aisin,

    GLOBAL szAppName AS ASCIIZ*9 defines how long the ASCIIZ is, 8
    full characters plus the terminating null.

    TCHAR szAppName[]=TEXT ("XXXXXXX"); is an undefined string array
    in C. Without a value in the brackets, you can make the string
    length to your liking, sorta like Basics dynamic string.

    Just so happens that in C you can define and initialize in the
    same statement. Hope this helps!!!

    Cheers,
    Cecil

    Asciiz*9?

    Everytime I try to read the Petzold example in PB format,
    I saw this:
    GLOBAL szAppName AS ASCIIZ*9
    Why need to put the ASCIIZ*9? In the original C code will be
    TCHAR szAppName[]=TEXT ("XXXXXXX");
    Any advise on this?
    Thank
