Please bear with me as I explain what I want to do in layman's terms :

I'm coding in C++.

I'd like to learn how to hook into another application so that when a specific function is called, my function is called instead.

Basically I want to be able to do some pre-processing on the data  being passed as parameters before passing them on to the original function that was to receive them.

I don't currently know how to 'hook into' another application, nor do I know how to initially determine the name of the function I want to hook.

Is there any simple example anywhere of how this can be done?

Thx,
Mithra
