: : you people won't (or can't - but i won't accept that) answer a simple question. Maybe it's because its not so simple.
: : i will ask one last time, but this time i will say the problem:
: : Next school year, i will be a high school senior, and i am taking computer programming, again. But, this time my teacher is letting me choose the books i will do. i would like do to graphics, sound, music, database, and dll's. All i need is the title, author, and isbn. i like to use C++ for programming, that is why i am asking in here. i am using Dev-C++ 5.0 beta 9.2 (220.127.116.11) IDE with Mingw compiler system with GCC 3.4.2. (if dll's are compiler/IDE depentant). also, i'm looking for books that are for games, that is what i want to do, make games. oh, my friend also wants to do this, so i would like a book for c++ that is no older than five years. so, i am sorry if i was not clear about it.

: : - looking for books on graphics, sound, music, database, and dll's
: : - need: title, author, and isbn
: : - the language used is c++
: : - and a recent book on c++ for my friend
: To learn how dll:s work you need to know Win32 programming - which you need to learn sooner or later if you are going to develop Windows programs. The book you want is
: Programming Windows, by Charles Petzold

: Assuming that you know C (or C++).
Thanks, Lundin. All i need now is a book on how to sound and music in a program. i would like a reconmendation by June 8, because i want to give the final list to my teacher on the last day of school, though i can give her a reconmendation next year.
