Hey I was wondering a simple question. I remember using some sort of Windows function to play a sound or a piece of music... What was that function, what libraries, includes, etc do I need and what does each one do? For example isn''t there one function to play a song and one to stop that song? Thanks for your help - Jesse Barksdale - Say What? studios

The API functions for playing MIDI files all begin with midi. midiOutOpen is one of them. The prototypes are declared in mmsystem.h, the library to link with is winmm.lib.
