RE: how do API calls from VB work?

Take a look at this 4 part tutorial  http://www.mentalis.org/vbtutor/dlls3.shtml

Two strings walk into a bar. The first string says to the bartender: 'Bartender, I'll have a beer. u.5n$x5t?*&4ru!2[sACC~ErJ'. The second string says: 'Pardon my friend, he isn't NULL terminated'.
