Book Summary : Programming Applications for Microsoft Windows 4-E
Aimed at the experienced C/C++ developer, the new edition of Jeffrey Richter's Programming Applications for Microsoft Windows supplies expanded coverage of essential advanced Windows programming techniques and APIs. In addition, the book includes excellent material on Windows 2000 (including future 64-bit versions of the OS) and use of some C++ for sample code.

This book's strength has to be its coverage of essential under-the-hood operating system features, like processes and threads, synchronization objects and memory management techniques, plus the APIs used to work with them. In each section, the book zeros in on how Windows 2000 and Windows 98 manage these system objects. (Windows NT 4 isn't mentioned here, however.) Short, effective examples, several of which incorporate the author's reusable custom C++ classes, demonstrate each operating system feature in action. Several useful utilities highlight details of how Windows works, with programs that let you view threads, memory objects, and other kernel objects.

With its coverage of Unicode and 64-bit Windows 2000, this is a book that will take your codebase into the future. Besides describing important APIs, the book provides programming tricks and tips for many useful advanced coding tasks (such as local thread storage, sparsely mapped memory files, using DLLs, and Windows hooks.)

Clearly written and filled with technical details on Windows 2000, this book is a great resource for any C/C++ programmer who wants to know what is really going on inside the latest Microsoft OS. In all, this title will be an essential "upgrade" for any reader of an earlier edition and will no doubt deserve serious consideration from C/C++ programmers wanting to get the most out of their Windows code. --Richard Dragan

Product Description
PROGRAMMING APPLICATIONS FOR MICROSOFT WINDOWS is the preeminent guide to Windows programming at the API level. Now in its fourth edition, the previously titled ADVANCED WINDOWS is revised to bring software developers the latest information about Windows 98, Windows 2000, and 64-bit Windows. Its complete coverage of the Windows operating system provides an inside view of how Windows 2000 and Windows 98 work and how to use their features. Topics covered include processes, threads, virtual memory, DLLs, file I/O, and message crackers. In addition, the fourth edition shows how the move to 64-bit Windows will affect developers. For systems-level programmers, this is a must-have title.
