I am looking for a good book on Windows programming - I already know a bit about C/C++, and I need to know how to use these languages to create windows, message boxes, et al. Can someone recommend a good (and cheap) text? Stanley

Programming Windows Fith Edition by Charles Petzold. If you look on ebay in computers/books you can find it four about $25.00. It is without question the best book for your situation (unless you plan to use MFC).

You should head on over to www.cpp-programming.com, it''s a nice source for that stuff. You can also learn how to do windows in assembly at win32asm.cjb.net, which is pretty similar to c++ as far as this is concerned. Hope that helps

Thanks for the suggestions. I''m learning programming, and I would like to focus on games, because objects like spaceships and cobalt bombs are far more interesting than those like students and files.

Any suggestions on how I break in games programming?

Stanley
