I have been reworking the tn5250 code to compie as c++ code in visual

admittedly I am not great at reading documentation if it is not right in
front of me. So maybe I did not have to do what I did.

I created a c++ project and added the modules one by one as .cpp files.
Added #pragma once to the header files. Removed the struct
typedefs. Changed most of the macros to be straight function calls.. Took
out the trace and debug macros. Removed debug.c, which enabled the calls
thru a function pointer to be declared as function calls. And I have been
moving some static functions to be member functions.

Anyway, I was just doing this for myself and am able to post it somewhere
if people want it. The tn5250 project is well done and works great.
Congrats to those who wrote it.

Sounds interesting! For what it's worth, tn5250 compiles as-is under
Windows 98 - Windows 7. I know: I've been doing it for many years :-)
I've used Mingw and Cygwin to compile and had success with both.

Will you try to keep the current project in sync with yours, or is this
a more or less permanent fork?
