    api reference material

    Does anyone know of a way of seperating the SDK help files for viewing?

    My aim is to get a copy of Code::Blocks and the Win32 API reference material onto a pen drive.

    I move around computers quite a bit and don't always have internet access for the MSDN library. It would be nice to have the reference material handy on a pen drive. Carrying a CD with MSDN on just isn't practical.

    Thanks.

    did you try google ?

    first link in the search: Iczelion's Win32 Assembly Homepage
    yes, the title does say assembly but theres a file on the page: Win32 API reference
    i downloaded it to confirm, its the win32 api. i'm glad you asked tho, thats handy.

    theres also a file, Microsoft Win32 Knowledge Base and its description says "As the name implies, it's a collection of Q&A related to win32 programming."

    hope this helps.

    yeah, I had been googling.

    I had been looking for ways of packaging the current API reference (i.e. 2003 R2).
    I think the one you provided is from around the 1995 area.

    There must be some way of collecting the SDK help files and a viewer together.

    I've grabbed the link you posted anyway, it's certainly useful until I can find something more up to date.

    Thanks.
