Reading Microsoft's Code!

Recommended Posts

In Visual C++, Microsoft has provided its own various functions like Line, Ellipse, Fill, PolyBezier etc... Are the source code for these functions also provided along with the installation of Visual Studio? If yes how do we locate them? If no, can we download them from someplace? "What dost thou say, O dear!" "There is a Bug in every Code!"

Those functions are part of the Windows Graphics Device Interface(GDI), which is available on all Windows compilers. It is not limited to Microsoft tools.

No, these functions are an integral part of Windows itself. And MS doesn''t share Windows source code with just anyone...

...and therefore I believe linux must be destroyed.
