What version of Delphi are you using?  On the Developer and Client/Server Editions (for 2.0), they include the VCL source, which also includes the Pascal-equivalents to all Windows Data types, Pascal Prototypes for all of the Win32API functions, etc.  If you are using Win95 or NT 4.0, you can use its Find in Files function to search the text of the files in the ".\SOURCE\" directory tree for the variable type you are looking for.  It will bring up all files where it found a hit for that word.  From there, you can drag-and-drop the file(s) onto Delphi's open Editor window, and Delphi will open them up, at that point it is just a matter of a little bit of searching through the file(s) (it usually takes me two to three files to find the one I am looking for) until you find the definition you are looking for.

If you do not have the source, or do not have an easy way to find the particular file(s) that contain the definition, post a comment reply to this message with the C data types that you are looking for in particular, and I will look them up for you....

Sure, I will work on setting up a list, but what types do you need?
