regarding your comments about screaming in pain and having teeth pulled
because of pthreads-win32, i am so so sorry: i cannot help you there.
i don't have the time nor the expertise. i posted (some time
afterwards) a message indicating just how many occurrences of DCE
exception macros there are - it's literally hundreds.
at least pthreads-win32 "gets something going".
i believe strongly in "GetItWorking(tm)" and
i _don't_ believe in throwing everything away just because one way to
get things up and running quickly happens not to be the nicest solution.
it's a matter of priorities.
plus, like i said in my previous reply, DCE exceptions deal with
networking and memory errors in a runtime environment where application
designers _know_ that there's going to be order-of-milliseconds delays.
the usual speed-critical criteria which make people run away screaming
about exceptions simply do not apply.
