How to force an immediate writing of the printf() buffer content to console ???

P: n/a
I wrote something with printf() to the console (under Windows) in a DLL.
Then I called back a routine and detected that the output of the later called code
was written PRIOR to the previous text to the console.
So I am searching for a way to force Windows (Visual C++) to release the current content
of the printf buffer.

I read somewhere that appending a '\n' would do that. But: I already appended a '\n'
and it didn't help.

As far as I remember there is a function like flush() or so which has a similar meaning.

Could someone help me ?

Thank you
