    Some template modifications powered by PAPI 1.0.6.
    PAPI's wrapper functions have used 6 queries while generating this page.
    Just curious what it is, it's mentioned at the bottom of the WDF forum.

    Definition for: API

    Application Program Interface. An interface between the operating system and application programs, which includes the way the application programs communicate with the operating system, and the services the operating system makes available to the programs.For example, an API may make it possible for programs that run under it to open windows and display message boxes.

    That is a very narrow definition of API.

    API does stand for Application Program Interface. However, I like to think of it as instructions on how to incorporate a given program into other applications, without having to know the inner workings of that programs. Sorta like, I give you a ready-made program. But instead of letting you figure it out, I give you a list of functions/variables/constants that are being used in my program and are accessible to your program if you put it with your program.

    did that make any sense?
