Could someone help me interpret the following line ?

#define IOCTL_VOLUME_BASE ((LONG) 'V')

I'm converting the WinIoCtl.h to an inc file for use with MASM
and don't understand what a long 'V' is supposed to be. This
file is included with the February 2003 SDK.

Thank you for bringing that to my attention. But it is only
a small part of the original h file. I have almost the entire
file converted except for that line.

IOCTL_VOLUME_BASE equ "V"

Correct me if I am wrong.

'V' is a character constant. I'd say

IOCTL_VOLUME_BASE = 000000056h ; 'V'

I was wondering the same thing. I will try it
and see if it works. Thanks.
