I meant specifically the findfirst and findnext functions which work from
ffblk structures.
I have converted dir.h to vc format and started to write wrappers for the
funcs prototyped.therin
I got distracted by adding  #ifdef _MSC_VER blocks to my program instead

I would ideally like a file called dj.lib in my msdev/lib and versions of
all the standard headers
this would allow DJGPP programs to be compiled with minimal adaptation

I can see problems with inevitable name clashes and patching extra
prototypes in existing .h files

I agree it would be better to use ANSI or POSIX functions in the first place
if portability is important
