I tried it defining all the symbols you mention, but it won't work. The 
only way I could get it to work was by commenting out the "__inline__"s 
from the code. Since begin_code.h does #define it to "__inline" with the 
condition you showed above, I concluded that the "_MSC_VER" symbol was 
not being set. So, I tried adding it to the list of defined symbols 
given to the compiler, but then I got errors in windows.h.

By the way, what does _MSC_VER stand for? Is it supposed to contain the 
version of Microsoft Visual C(++)? In that case, I think it would be 
better if I added a condition to begin_code.h to handle BCC's case. Do 
you know which is the symbol that identifies that compiler?

Thank you,
