    Talking TCP/IP and Win32 SDK Books

    I know a little bit of Win32 - enough for a framework of an openGL application. But I want to learn more about win32. Is it the best way to create apps? I want to stay away from MFC.

    I also want to learn the basics of TCP/IP programming. Enough to make a simple networked game, or a client or something.

    What would you recommend in those areas? Or would you not recommend win32? something else better? What tutorials, or resources? Thanks

    Petzold and Network Programming for Windows.

    Search the boards.
    This has been discussed at great length in numerous threads - probably why you haven't had a response till now.

    I highly recommend Network Programming for Microsoft Windows, Second Edition by Anthony Jones and Jim Ohmund.

    Here is the defacto standard

    It is by Richard Stevens and is called "Unix Network Programming".
