#ifndef _COMMON_H_

typedef __int64 QWORD, *LPQWORD;

#define MAKEQWORD(a, b)	\
	((QWORD)( ((QWORD) ((DWORD) (a))) << 32 | ((DWORD) (b))))

#define LODWORD(l) \
#define HIDWORD(l) \
	((DWORD)(((QWORD)(l) >> 32) & 0xFFFFFFFF))

// Read 4K of data at a time (used in the C++ streams, Win32 I/O, and assembly functions)
#define MAX_BUFFER_SIZE	4096

// Map a "view" size of 10MB (used in the filemap function)
#define MAX_VIEW_SIZE	10485760
