Subject [PATCH/Win32] Remove main() from ApacheCore.dll
Date Sun, 23 Nov 1997 22:54:34 GMT
Here's a patch that accomplishes what I discussed earlier:

1) It gets rid of the main() function in http_main.c (for Win32 only) and
   replaces it with an apache_main(). This takes main() out of
   ApacheCore.dll, which always struck me as a somewhat nasty idea.
   This also has the benefit of allowing other programs to link to
   it if they want (why? I dunno).

2) Remove main/dummy.c, and replace it with os/win32/main_win32.c,
   which just contains a main() function that calls the aforementioned
   apache_main(). This has the added benefit of not having to deal with
   a silly dummy object file just so link.exe doesn't complain about
   not having any object files when linking Apache.exe.

So here's the patch, followed by the contents of main_win32.c:
