    Question Programming with API?

    I was wondering if there is any good tutorials for programming in API? Or how to get started? Ive programmed with API for VB for a few years and its quite a bit different in C++. So im looking on how to get started? Where to find API calls? How to use them? Etc... Thanks

    Well, first off, look up the meaning of the acronym "API"

    Second, since this is the windows programming forum, I'm guessing you're talking about Win32.

    http://winprog.org/tutorial

    and

    (shameless plug)


    The first site will be very good for you. The second one has a few tutorials but nothing incredibly in-depth.
