well maybe a note just to the unwary. I've not looked hard at the 'C' 
interface side but I think if memory allocators and file handle 
manipulation are kept within the library then it's okay. Certainly I've 
managed to link a wrapper dll (written in VC9) into my main app (BCB) by 
following those rules.
