    API is not the term to use there are literally thousands of distinct API's(Application Programming Interface).

    i'm gonna assume you mean Win32.

    from what i hear Petzold's book is the one to have.

    YES it is, "Windows Programming" by Charles Petzold is very well done! (there aren't too many really good programming books around, but this is one of the few!)

    They may also appear in your compilers help.

    Unless you are one of those people with the cracked version that could not include the help (due to it being on DVD).

    If so, pay for it or download a free one.

    Win32 SDK Reference

    Download the Win32 API Reference from the following location:

    http://www.borland.com/devsupport/bo...s/BC52HLP1.ZIP

    It's approximately 5 megs big and contains most of the common functions. Use http://www.msdn.microsoft.com/ for information and examples on the old and new functions.
