WINDOWS TECH JOURNAL
Welcome to Windows Tech Journal, the magazine of tools and techniques for
Windows programmers. This disk contains source code files to accompany the
articles and columns printed in our premiere issue.
Files are collected in subdirectories. For instance, all of the source code
files for Richard Sadowsky's article on accessing NetBIOS in Turbo Pascal for
Windows are collected in the DPMI subdirectory.
We've also provided a ZIPFILES subdirectory; it contains the contents of the
other directories, PKZIP'd by article.
Here's what you've got:
DPMI: Source files to accompany Richard Sadowky's article on
accessing real-mode TSRs and device drivers from protected
mode Windows applications via DPMI. The code's in Turbo
Pascal for Windows, with liberal use of inline assembly.
PETZOLD: Source files (in C) to accompany Charles's "How Visual
Basic Made Me a Better C Programmer." The simple apps are
supposed to show VB's influence on Petzold's coding style.
LEVARO: C source for Richard Levaro's "A Perfect Fit," an article
on writing custom controls. This code implements two new
controls for Windows programmers; the more interesting is a
SHAW: Source files (in C++) from Richard Hale Shaw's "The Virtual
Column." This month, Richard provides a set of classes to
encapsulate the complexity of DDE communications. The code
uses DDEML, a DLL distributed with Win 3.1 but compatible
with v. 3.0.
Q&A: Short WinWord Basic code for accessing environment variables
without opening a DOS box.
