    Windows API

    I've looked all over the place for a book to get for Windows API programming in C++, and I can't find anything. I know that Petzold is a good author on that, but it's written in C, and I really don't feel like making the effort to go and figure out what all that C code means, even though it's similar to C++. And I'd much rather buy a real book rather than an e-book because I don't like sitting at the computer for a long time reading. Any suggestions?

    stop whingeing about the C. There is nothing in C that any half experienced c++er cant understand. Petzold is THE BOOK for win32. C or no C.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi
