Bbutil.h reference?

I've been reading through the native SDK (tablet os) apiece reference webpages.  I cannot seem to find an api reference for bbutil.h however.  Can anybody point me to the bbutil documentation (list of functions and their descriptions?).

Re: Bbutil.h reference?

The Bbutil functions aren't part of the api's to the OS.  They are utilities used in the sample programs.  If you want to see how they are put together, the best thing is to look through the header file.

Re: Bbutil.h reference?

Can we use these libraries in our apps or must we rewrite their functions?

Re: Bbutil.h reference?

These are just additional source files included in the examples which provide some helper functions.

If you want to use them in your code, just copy bbutil.c/bbutil.h to your project.
