C/C++ Windows book names

Here’re the name of books that may be useful to a c/c++ Windows programmer


Programming Windows
by Charles Petzold. The book to get on Win32 API. If you want to write programs using
just the API (which is what this tutorial covers), you need this book.

Programming Windows with MFC
by Jeff Prosise. If you want to venture into MFC (AFTER becoming fully accustomed to
using the Win32 API), this is the book for you. If you don't like MFC but intend on getting
a job doing windows development, get this anyway, it's better to know than not.

Programming Applications for Windows
by Jeffrey Richter. Not for newbies, if you want to be up on managing processes and
threads, dlls, windows memory management, exception handling, and hooking into the
system, then this is the book for you.

Visual C++ Windows Shell Programming
by Dino Esposito. For anyone interested in the visual and user-friendly aspects of
windows, this book covers writing extentions to the windows shell, working efficiently
with files and drag and drop, customizing the taskbar and windows explorer, and numerous
other tricks. Well worthwhile for anyone writing GUI apps in windows.

Network Programming for Microsoft Windows
Up to date information on network programming, including NetBIOS, mailslots and pipes,
and of course the ever important windows sockets, complete with winsock2 and raw
sockets. Also contains specific information on the various windows platforms including
2000 and CE.
