: Can anyone recommend a reference for C programming (not C++) on
: Windows using the Win32 API? I would like to write some applications
: for Windows 98/ME/2K/XP if possible.
: Silly comment, but Freeware would be nice too.
This is a very good tuorial on windows programming and taught me the basics about windows programming. The only bad thing is that it's a C++ tutorial, you may be able to use it with C but i'm not sure.
Secondly you might want to get your hands on a Win32 API reference. I'm not sure where you can get that from as i managed to get a friend on mIRC to send it to me but it has taught me a lot about windows API programming.
The one i've got is in the form of a help file called WIN32.hlp, you may be able to find it by doing a search on that.
With the API reference if you're not sure about a certain windows function, class, constant etc you will be able to search the reference and find exactly what you need. If you need an API function that does a certain thing you will be able to run a search on the help file for a word or two and most likely find what you are looking for.
Hope this helps! :)
