...and the Microsoft C library offers _open(), _read(), _write(), _close(), etc., which function similarly to the UN*X routines - similarly enough that GLib (not to be confused with glibc) and Wireshark use them on Windows - so, on Windows, if you define "open" as "_open", "read" as "_read", etc., that might take care of those routines.
