    Books and Compilers

    I'm learning C from the dummies books and have some other c books. They all program for dos, whats a good book that will teach me how to program for Windows?

    I have Borland C++ 3.1 and Borland C++ 5.0 compilers, do i need DJGPP for some code or will borland be able to compile the code to a program?

    All help is I am thankful for.

    Assuming you code in ISO C you should have no trouble compiling code on any compiler. For Windows programs you will need a compiler that supports Windows, Borland should work. As for the book, I've found Programming Windows by Charles Petzold to be excellent.

    My best code is written with the delete key.
