    "From the Ground Up" is a series of computer training books published by Osborne, here for example. Seeing how aggresive some firms are over their names and images, I'd think about that title.

    a few probs
    -this tutorial is aimed for VC++ users only. didn't you say you'd write them for Dev C++ as well.
    -for the love of god, change the font

    otherwise good tut. i especialy like the notes at the end for the function reference

    yes, i know i said i was aiming at devc++ also, but you have to give me time, I don't even have devc++ yet and I'm going to have to get used to it. I'm sorry they weren't uploaded at the same time

    Hopefully I'll have a devc++ version up tonight though, and possibly tutorial 2 up by tomorrow

    and what's the matter with the font? It's the default font on all websites....

    IMO, sans-serif fonts are better for reading on a computer screen, and fixed width is the best for code samples.

    I just put that copyright thing at the bottom of all my pages, keeps the honest people from taking stuff or however that goes. Not like it really matters anyways, heh

    I would like to know more arguments for that function. and the full file in one run ex:
    Code:
    int main(void){
         printf("Hello Word\n");
         return 0;
    }
    not
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    blah blah blah
    Code:
    int main(void)
    blah ...
    because sometimes I can't something to compile that I am learning from, but I was able to copy the whole thing. It makes it cumbersome like that. Just a suggestion; you could have it both ways

    oh ok then. i think it's quite an important part of a winAPI tut because if you look at theForgers tutorial, hes supposing you're using MSVC++ which isn't to dandy when you want to 1) check out the source code(well of course you can, but theres still a .dsp thrown in there :/) 2) learn about things that MSVC automates (dialog design is limited to a few controls so i've ended up wiriting most of mie on the fly today )

    BTW, you do know the default font is chosen by Microsoft (at least if you are using internet explorer)

    -Thanks for the feedback so far everyone, once I've got the style down for these tutorials it should be a lot smoother when I start adding new ones...
