I am talking about the Fifth Edition, of course. I just want to ask a couple questions.
1) Is it in C++ ?
2) Is it worth buying it since it is 1998? Wouldn't be a bit dated?
3) Is it helpful with UI, memory, and pretty much all other IMPORTANT Windows technique?
I am on a tight budget right now, I am building a thousand dollar pc in 2 months and am saving up, so I can't spend 40 dollars on a book that is utterly useless to me. Also: is Jeffrey Richter's Window Via C/C++ a better decision? Thanks for any answers!
I would second what Canis lupus said. The lowest level interface to the Windows OS is C based. You can't get beneath that. Even if you write in assembler, you would still have to call the C based Windows Api functions to do anything. If you wish to use C++ classes all that does is wrap various functionality of the C based Api. Through encapsulation it may make some things easier, but it doesn't add anything.
