Hi Scott,

On April 24 I added a feature in lib5250 to retrieve macro names from the
.tn5250macros file. I notice in the ChangeLog on 2007-11-30 you added a macro menu to the win32 terminal. I've looked through winterm.c and tn5250-win.c and I haven't found anything that looks to me like macro menu code. I'm sure I'm just missing something obvious. Could you point it out to me?

I ask because I want to get a unified method for handling macro names and/or descriptions. I'd like to see what you did with the win32 terminal as maybe that will change my approach in lib5250. At a minimum I could change the win32 version to use the macro naming feature in lib5250.

if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on
the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)
