    Question Point me to the Light

    Okay, I have looked long and hard to find an online turorial (That is Free) that teaches Windows Programming in C (Not C++), and I am yet to find one... And please don't tell me to go buy a book, the only book shop around here doesn't have anything besides MFC For Visual C++ books, and my Dad doesn't trust Online Buying...

    - Thank You

    hmm, this is where I started out for c++... it says "C++" but I don't think it include classes and stuff. There'll probably be a few things in c++, but you might be able to pick up some useful information anyways... probably mostly from the "Generic Windows" section. Give it a try!
    Just Google It. √

    A good one is also

    www.winprog.org/tutorial

    He includes a tinsy bit of C++ but it is almost exclusively C. And the little bit of C++ there is, you really can't get around simply because of the way Windows works.

    For a windows tutorial for C and not C++ try:

    http://www.cse.iitb.ac.in:8000/proxy...in32/tutorial/

    It's theForger's Win32 API tutorial. Its what I used originally to learn windows programming and helped me a lot. Hope it helps you just as much as it did me. And it covers a lot.

    So is www.winprog.org.


    They're the same tutorial.

    The same one.

    Just on different sites.

    The Forger has simply posted an updated version of the tutorial on the winprog site... "version 2" he calls it. But it's essentially the same thing, same examples, same code, just presented a little differently.
