Hi,
I am creating a BC 5. Dll (C file) that shuld get a char buffer from a Delphi program. 1)
Is it posible to transfer 'array of char' types and not only the PChar type ?
2) i am currently using DELPHI 1 and 16 bit DLL, what will be the diffrence when i'll
use DELPHI 2 and 32 bit DLL (something about protection of memory in WINnt ...) ?

Commented:
Just declare it like this:

  function MyFunc(var Buffer; Size: Integer): Boolean; ...

or something. Then "Buffer" can be anything you want.
There should be no important difference between Win16 & Win32.
Not in this case anyway...
