unistd.h

Hello,

Anybody know the equivilant for unistd.h in Windows?
A friend of mine needs it, cause in Linux this file provides the programmer with a set of functions that can be easily executed from Assembly.

Thanks

Can you be more specific?
Exactly what functions are you looking for?

There are lot of C and C++ implementations in Windows which provide unistd.h .
One such provider is http://www.bloodshed.net/ , where you can download Beta version of this tool.

Hi Hurb,
If you want a Unix look-and-feel on a Windows box, try Cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com). It comes with unistd.h and lots of other bells and whistles your friend already knows from Linux.

Using unistd commands in cygwin's asm should be very similar to Linux (if using gcc's powerful inline assembly), quite a lot of Linux sources can be compiled on cygwin without modifications.

Cheers!
