    Hey man, cool program, one thing though: why when I click on 'open save file' the screen goes black for a second then opens up the .txt file? Sorta annoying, and time consuming. Other wise Its nicely organized and efficient.

    looks quite good syntaxbubble although when you update it for opening a file look into ShellExecute() rather than using system() then you wont get that ugly console box come up when you fire up notepad.
    Good job though.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!

    Talking Ok...

    Thanks a lot for all your comments/suggestions! I am working on a new version now, anyhow, with DEFAULT_GUI_FONT. I'll let you all know when I have it fixed along with the ShellExecute!

    Open save file doesn't do anything but open up the DOS prompt briefly for me...maybe you should make it so you can open up a specific entry in your text file when you click the button (IE have a new dialog pop up with all the names in the book inside of a combo box, then you select one and hit OK) then it would load all of the info into their text boxes. Of course this would probably require you to reconfigure how you save it, so you might want to try saving things in the format

    firstname:Ken
    lastname:None_Given
    Number:911-8976

    something like that...Nice start, though.
