Programming Applications for Microsoft Windows (Dv-Mps General)
Jeffrey Richter
1572319968
September 1999
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
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,...

Windows 98 for Dummies

June 15, 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The Dummies series long ago proved itself an excellent means of explaining the elementary aspects of operating systems to new users. Windows 98 for Dummies continues the tradition with its admirable coverage of Microsoft's latest consumer operating system.

Windows 98 for Dummies begins by explaining the differences between PCs and Macintoshes and detailing the differences between clicking and double-clicking. In the process of introducing the operating system, Rathbone explains lots of incidental factoids, including what a graphical user interface is and how the Print Screen button has been given new functionality in Windows 98. He then moves on to the mechanics of window management, explaining how to maximize, minimize, and incrementally adjust the size of application windows. Other chapters deal with cutting and pasting,...



Programming the Microsoft Windows Driver Model, Second Edition
Walter Oney
0735618038
December 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Written for advanced C/C++ programmers, Walter Oney's Programming the Microsoft Windows Driver Model is a technically astute and clearly presented guide to writing custom Windows 2000 device drivers.

The author's command of the details of the new Windows Driver Model (WDM) standard is what makes this book such a clear success. (Because the WDM is rich in kernel and system services, the trick is often knowing how to use what's available rather than doing everything yourself.) The author presents a solid overview of the WDM architecture and breaks down the process of writing custom device drivers into manageable pieces, from the basics of loading device drivers to creating and processing I/O request packets. The book is very good at exposing kernel system calls, design principles, and programming techniques (such as...

Windows¿ 98 Simplified¿

Book Review
This fine book uses clear illustration techniques to explain how to perform elementary Windows 98 tasks, teaching such essential skills as copying files, formatting floppy disks, installing printers, surfing the Web, and communicating via electronic mail using Outlook Express. If you're completely unable to accomplish anything under Windows 98 and you're nervous about experimenting alone, Windows 98 Simplified will get you up to speed.

The most elementary of the Windows 98 books in IDG's 3-D Visual series, this full-color tome is almost identical to Master Windows 98 Visually, also by Ruth Maran; however, a few details (such as how to print from Paint) are omitted. In most cases Windows 98 Simplified uses the same illustrations as its sister volume, with one key exception: many of the illustrations in this book have...

Book Review
Windows Resource Kits have always been a quasi-definitive source of information for configuring and troubleshooting Windows. Anyone who does it for a living is almost certain to own a copy. But if you've found that past editions of the Resource Kit covered everything under the sun except the problem that you were trying to solve at the moment, you'll be pleased with this edition, which easily surpasses previous Resource Kits in the depth of coverage and the detailed explanations.

Teach Yourself Windows 98 Visually: Read Less, Learn More
Ruth Maran
0764560255


·
 
Book Review
Teach Yourself Windows 98 Visually relies on the principle that it's possible to teach a reader how to perform Windows 98 tasks with extremely few words, relying instead on copious illustrations (both screen shots and conceptual diagrams), labels, and efficient prose. This book succeeds in its mission; a novice with no computer experience will find this guide extremely helpful in unraveling the less intuitive parts of Windows 98.

Each spread begins with an attractive conceptual diagram that illustrates an abstraction; for example, a freeway overpass surmounts a twisting mountain path to demonstrate Windows 98 shortcuts. Then a series of screen shots shows what appears on your monitor as you perform the task. Lines and labels clarify the names and functions of key interface elements, while succinct captions explain what's...
