Accessing the API

When performing live response or perhaps even analyzing files retrieved from a system during live response, you may want to access the Windows API. The Windows API can provide some useful functionality, already partially built. Fortunately, Microsoft exposes a good portion of the public API via the Microsoft.com Web site, and in addition, there are books available that describe other API functions that are accessible, albeit not fully documented.

In order to access the Windows API, you need to be sure that you have the Win32::API module installed. You can check to see if this module has been installed in your Perl distribution by typing the following command at the command prompt.
