using windows api functions
I'm trying to call the OpenProcess() api function. I included std.c.windows.windows at the beginning of the file, but the compiler still does not recognize the function name. The function is defined in kernel32.dll . what am I doing wrong?

Using std.c.windows.windows.

The translation there is hopelessly incomplete, or at least was last time I 
looked.  A much more comprehensive translation is here:

you can call any window api like this:
import std.c.windows.windows;	//for WinExec
import std.windows.charset;	//for toMBSz

void main()
{
	// bbs.yidabu.com ×¢toMBSzº¯ÊýÊÇΪÁËÉú³Énull½áβ×Ö·û´®
	LPCSTR lpCmdLine = toMBSz(r"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe http://bbs.yidabu.com/forum-10-1.html");
	UINT uCmdShow = SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED;
	WinExec(lpCmdLine,uCmdShow);
}

// bbs.yidabu.com ÏÂÃæ¾ÍÊǶ¨ÒåÒªµ÷ÓõÄwindows apiº¯Êý
extern (Windows)
{
	export {
		UINT WinExec(LPCSTR lpCmdLine,UINT uCmdShow);
	}
}

Where do you get that idea from?  Firstly, only a tiny subset of Windows API 
functions are in std.c.windows.windows.  Secondly, the functions in 
std.windows.charset aren't part of the Windows API at all.

Oh dear.  It would appear that the web interface is no good at letting you 
use non-ASCII characters.  At the moment I can't figure out what character 
encoding that was _meant_ to be!
