Fully updated to reflect Win32 enhancements in Windows 2000 and Windows 98, Marshall Brain's classic guide remains the most effective way for developers to master Win32 services in real-world application development. Brain introduces Win32 files, directory and drive structure, NT processes and threads, synchronization mechanisms, network communications, Remote Procedure Calls, NT services, NT security, consoles, communications ports, accessing system information, and using DLLs to modularize programs. Each self-contained chapter covers a different APl service, with functions demonstrated clearly in code examples (all included on an accompanying CD-ROM). Brain also shows how multiple services can be integrated to create larger, more sophisticated applications.
