total newbie windows programmer....
could someone suggest a couple of very basic programs that i could try, to help learn windows programming? The tutorials are good and all, but they concentrate on one specific thing most of the time. I know a game of any sort would be too hard for me at this time, but any suggestions on what i could do to help exercise my win32 knowledge?
What do you program when you are learning an API?
One thing i did try was to make a little program that told you the X position of the mouse if u hit the left mouse button in the window, and the right mouse button was the Y position.
Thanks for any input and advice you can give!
