    Talking Programming Windows 5th Edition

    by: Charles Petzold

    This book is worth its weight in gold. Take my word for it. I've wasted several hundred dollars in books and it ONLY cost me $54.00. That is cheap for the info. it contains.

    BLASPHEMY! Begone from my C board, you foul lover of objects, before the gods of C cast you into the void as punishment for your weakness! There is no penance for saying such things in my presence. You are henceforth excommunicated. Never return to this house, filthy heretic!

    A few resources

    Firstly, Windows was written in C, so C is the most popular (and probably best) language to write Windows programs in.

    Personally, I took life the cheapskate way and learnt from online tutorials. An excellent introductory guide can be found at:

    http://www.winprog.org/

    It helped me out a lot, and still does.

    If you're working with Win32 C, you simply can't live without a Win32 API Reference.. you can find one at:

    If in doubt about a function, you can always visit:
