Thank you for your efforts.  I managed to boil all of your changes down 
to simply #including <winsock.h> conditionally where necessary and 
removing those bogus Windows32 header includes.  And, of course, the 
addition of the BCB project files.

I didn't agree with several of the changes you made in your version. 
Would you please download the following IN-DEVELOPMENT version of the 
library and fix up any missing bits?

In particular, you'll notice these changes from the version you've made 
available on your site:

- One of the files #included windows.h.  I don't believe that to be 
absolutely necessary.  At most, you should conditionally include 
winsock.h as you did in so many of the other modules.  Furthermore, I 
think the module you had this fix in was the wrong place; it goes in one 
of the .hh files, not the .cc file you had it in.  (, I 
believe.)  Please try this fix again, keeping these guidelines in mind.

- One of the project files was named very generically: ProjectGroup1 or 
something like that.  I renamed it to mysqlpp.bp? to match the others. 
You may need to fix up some things to make it build again.

- Your ZIP file contains directory structure and code formatting 
changes.  Please don't do this.  Keep the change set to that which is 
absolutely necessary to make the program build.  When I have to 
disentangle your style changes from the subtantive ones, it slows me 
down.  If you want to talk about style changes, let's argue about that

Can you be more explicit?  I need something detailed that I can put in 
the project README file.  Since I don't have BCB, I can't infer details.
