What windows calls a handle, linux calls a descriptor.

They are very broad concepts which can basically be called a unique reference to something and/or anything.
Internally they are usually opaque pointers to some structure that is hidden from the caller for the exact
reason you just found out. They have no real meaning outside the API other than something to identify
something inside the API.

Generally I would call it a HANDLE on windows or a descriptor on linux. It really isn't a problem you should
be able to recognize one of your own HANDLES/Descriptors because you have to allocate it from somewhere and
then just typecast it to what it is.

RULE 1: Don't expose anything on an API you don't need too.
In vino veritas
