GetPID() missing from SDK

Post by xenic »

I recently saw a mention of the IDOS->GetPID() function by broadblues in a topic at AmigaWorld.net. Even though it appears to have been introduced months before the release of SDK 53.20, GetPID() doesn't appear in the SDK includes. I don't have any need to use that function but ALL available functions should be included in the next SDK.

I think you are mistaken. According to the DOS documentation, GetPID() was introduced in V53.58, which was released on April 20th, 2010.

The SDK 53.20 was released on March 3rd, 2010 (according to my Downloads: partition), so GetPID() wasn't available then.

@ tonyw
I guess you are right. I was looking at the date on my archive but the files inside the archive indicate that the SDK was released earlier than I thought. Hopefully GetPID() will be included in the next SDK release.
