5.0 von 5 Sternen Learn to write windows programs the old fashioned way.
As everybody says, Programming Windows by Charles Petzold, now in its fifth edition is the definitive guide to the Win32 API, and windows based programming in general. Anybody who has experience in C programming and would like to learn how windows programs are written will be very happy reading this book, and will come away with a new found knowledge of windows...

3.0 von 5 Sternen No HTML version included
I was looking forward to put this "brick" on my lap-tops harddisk (my bags are already to heavy) and the cover said that the CD has a "Fully searchable HTML version of the book" on it, so it should be a small thing to do so. It turns out that there is *no* HTML version of the book on the CD. Instead there is something else that requires Internet...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Learn to write windows programs the old fashioned way., 18. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Programming Windows®, Fifth Edition (Microsoft Programming Series) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
As everybody says, Programming Windows by Charles Petzold, now in its fifth edition is the definitive guide to the Win32 API, and windows based programming in general. Anybody who has experience in C programming and would like to learn how windows programs are written will be very happy reading this book, and will come away with a new found knowledge of windows programming. Covering all the basics such as the structure of a windows program written in C, and the major aspects of the GDI, and other advanced topics after reading this book you will be ready to write your own windows programs, and then be ready to move onto more advanced topics such as MFC, where it helps to know what is really going on. The major topics covered in the book are graphics which include the printer, bitmaps, palettes, text and fonts, and also metafiles. The advanced topics go to include the basics of the multiple-document interface, multithreading and DLL's, and also sound programming and a small bit of internet programming. Those who want to know more about how the more advanced topics work would be happy reading Programming Applications for Microsoft Windows by Jeffrey Richter also, which goes into more detail about threads and DLL's than this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great book to get you on your way!, 25. Juni 1999

(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Programming Windows®, Fifth Edition (Microsoft Programming Series) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I would reference this book as the "bible" of win32 programming. This book covers many features of the Windows 95/98/NT features including printing, MDI, Mouse, Keyboard, and all the goodies.
This book sits upon my desk as the #1 reference when writing win32 code (without MFC). If your new to programming and are thinking about MFC I would consider starting with this non-object oriented approach so you understand what MFC is doing behind all the objects.
Easy reading (compared to other programming books) and a great deal of learning can be done.
To 4th edition "Programming Windows 95" owners:
1. If you want to use ToolBar's you better hold on to the last revision because it's missing in this one. I was very unhappy about that.
2. It's huge! If you thought carrying that last book was an issue, add a hard cover and a ton more pages and you've better start working out before carrying this around.
3. More usage of UNICODE and "NT" style information that is repeated in each code segment so be prepared.
It's a revision, and it's good. It's the best out there right now, but will not solve every problem you'll have.
Note: If you like object oriented, and uses of all the enhanced features of C++ you're not going to find it here.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Why this book?, 27. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Programming Windows®, Fifth Edition (Microsoft Programming Series) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Well question is very short. So will be the answer. If you have serious plans to do programming for windows OS visual C is definately the most powerfull environment. If you are serious in visual C and want best out of it choose win 32. Now you are down to win32. Where to start? well now you don't have much choice left but to accept what's best. So here you are having your personal copy of this book. Believe me all you ever need apart from this is MSDN (which is ofcourse free) and that too for reference purpose only. So buy it now.

I was looking forward to put this "brick" on my lap-tops harddisk (my bags are already to heavy) and the cover said that the CD has a "Fully searchable HTML version of the book" on it, so it should be a small thing to do so. It turns out that there is *no* HTML version of the book on the CD. Instead there is something else that requires Internet Explorer 4. So, unless you're using this particular browser, there is no hope for you. Just thought you should be informed.
Also, if you're interested of learning WIN32 in a "least common denominator" way, I guess the 4:th edition biased towards Win95 is a better choice. The 5:th edition has stuff specific to 98/NT which is only extra work to filter out, if you want to write code for all WIN32 machines.

5.0 von 5 Sternen great for learning windows GUI programming, 17. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Programming Windows®, Fifth Edition (Microsoft Programming Series) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is a very good book for C/C++ programmers who want to learn Windows programming using the Win32 API. I even recommend it to those of you trying to learn MFC (like myself) because you'll have a better understanding of why MFC is the way it is after reading it.
My impression after reading this book is that SDK-style programs can be compact and highly functional without a lot of code. In addition, they are easier to understand than their MFC counterparts.
The only negative thing I have to say about the book is that some explanations of options to various API functions could be better presented in tabular form, as opposed to being explained in prose. This would make the book more useful as a reference to intermediate/advanced programmers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book, 11. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Programming Windows®, Fifth Edition (Microsoft Programming Series) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book is great! No other book for windows programming has explained source codes of a book in such details. As a programmer, the best way of learning is reading codes. Unlike many windows programming books, the text in this book is relevant to source codes. This is a truely great book for both experienced and new windows programmers. You should try its source codes on your compiler. I only think the author could mention how to use MS Visual studio IDE run and debug his programs without using makefiles. It works like this: (1) Create a new project as Win32 application in Visual studio IDE. give it a name. (2) insert the .c file into the Win32 project. (3) compile and run in IDE. One can debug the codes in IDE easier.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Windows In A Whole New Way, 8. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Programming Windows®, Fifth Edition (Microsoft Programming Series) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I'm only thirteen and I love this book! Charles Petzolds Fifth edition of his windows programming book was even better than the first four! If you'd like to know how Windows works, then get inside the code for its programs and decipher them with this book. The programs demonstrate the many possibiities in windows programming and teach you how to do it yourself! This book is worth its weight in gold (which, with the hardcover, is about 4-5 pounds)! An improvement from the fourth edition is the chapter on networking possibilities at the end of the book, but then leaves you hanging. Another improvement is the amount of coverage on bitmaps, metafiles, and device-indepent-bitmaps.A must buy for a C programmer!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good, though somewhat poorly organized., 1. August 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Programming Windows®, Fifth Edition (Microsoft Programming Series) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I found this book to be very good at what it does- introduce you to, and teach Windows programming. The one problem that I have is that it must be read linearly, because the author made the mistake of burying offtopic subjects in certain chapters. For example, there is a long discussion of child window objects in the chapter on The Mouse- and that discussion was subsequently refered to in the chapter on child windows, so if you hadn't read the discussion in the earlier chapter, the later chapter was a bit confusing. So be prepared to read this behemoth of a book from cover to cover to get everything. And don't expect to carry the thing around. In hardcover, it weighs a ton.

3.0 von 5 Sternen So many words - so little substance, 18. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Programming Windows®, Fifth Edition (Microsoft Programming Series) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The book is so full of morsels of unrelated historical data and trivial facts, as well as verbose explanations of things that you never thought about and never will again that, well anyway, perhaps at this point you are starting to get a flavor for what I am talking about when I tell you that the book is a tad wordy. Don't buy this book if you are expecting a technical reference. If you can appreciate some of the background Petzold delivers then the 1500 pages will provide you with a great understanding, and five years from now when all of this stuff is outdated you can start a nice warm fire with it. I prefer a more direct style with diagrams and table references.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Low information content; OK as an introduction, 22. März 1999
Von 
bji@pobox.com (New York, New York, USA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Programming Windows®, Fifth Edition (Microsoft Programming Series) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book is OK if all you're looking for is a brief introduction to some of the more commonly used parts of the Win32 API.
If you want more detail, you'll have to go elsewhere. "Where?" is a good question. I'm still looking for a book that covers Win32 GUI programming in any significant depth.
This book shows you the simplest and most common ways to use the Win32 API but if you want to know more (like, what are the meaning of all of those flags that you can pass to the functions but that this book talks nothing about?), you're best bet is probably the documentation which comes with your win32 compiler (like MSVC++).
