The Windows C Run-Time (CRT) Sample Code Index Page


The following source code samples are making use the Windows C run-time library. The C run-time library provides routines for Windows operating system programming that based on C language. These routines automate many common programming tasks that are not provided by the standard C and C++ languages. There are many library files that contain Windows C run-time library that are discussed in MSDN.
