>extern "C" functions in a namespace link correctly.

Thanks. So they do (and still introducing the name into that namespace).

In that case:

  #if !defined(__cplusplus)
      WINBASEAPI DWORD WINAPI GetFileAttributesA(IN LPCSTR lpFileName);
      WINBASEAPI DWORD WINAPI GetFileAttributesW(IN LPCWSTR lpFileName);
  # ifdef UNICODE
  # define GetFileAttributes GetFileAttributesW
  # else
  # define GetFileAttributes GetFileAttributesA
  # endif // !UNICODE
    namespace Win32 {
      extern "C" {
        WINBASEAPI DWORD WINAPI GetFileAttributesW(IN LPCWSTR FileName);
        WINBASEAPI DWORD WINAPI GetFileAttributesA(IN LPCSTR FileName);
      inline DWORD GetFileAttributes(char const* FileName)
        return GetFileAttributesA(FileName) ;
      inline DWORD GetFileAttributes(wchar_t const* FileName)
        return GetFileAttributesW(FileName) ;
    } // namespace Win32 {
  #endif // !defined(__cplusplus)
