Recreating the classic 16-bit Notepad application
Over the past several weeks (in my limited spare time) I decided to recreate the classic Windows 3.1 Notepad application as a winter project to kill time. I mainly under took the endeaver to learn more about C language (since I'm a beginner), and its practical use in real world (old) Windows environment. Yeah I know that what I'm referring to is really dated, but remember it's just a fun over the winter project....Besides, I sure use the application enough (newer version of coarse), so why not find out "what makes it tick". Well, I recreated the whole application and as expected there are a few things I couldn't quite figure out; hense the whole idea behind this post. Before I go and ask specific questions, or post any code I need to know if it's ok with the moderator(s) of the board. I know board rule #6 might be in question here even though Microsoft already made there statement regarding this particular application and it's source code (aka the leaked source code from early 2000). So, if the moderator(s) feels that this is not a good idea then please delete this thread.
