I have just about got the basics down with c++ and thought i would start to dabble with windows programming . I eventually want to program games.
When i bought MSVC++ it included a book by Ivor Horton called
Introduction to MSVC++ 6.0 and i am not sure wheather or not if it is relevant . I have been advised to do the Win API thing as opposed to MFC .
The chapter headings all seem to have MFC or ATL in the title
Is ATL related to Win API or is this book basicly trying to sway me towards MFC?
