Here we have a compendious treatment of the MFC library and the basics of utilizing it via Visual C++ 6.0. This book is *not* an introduction to the C++ programming language, and although it's theoretically possible to absorb the material herein without prior Windows programming experience, I wouldn't recommend it. If you're looking for something aimed at beginners to this platform or the C++ language, you should look elsewhere. (Try Petzold's 'Programming Windows' for the former, or Lafore's 'Object-Oriented Programming in C++' for the latter.) If you're not, then you may very well find this book to be a useful tutorial and reference.A little background about me so you can get an idea of where I'm coming from: I've been programming in C for several years and know it extremely well, but in C++ I'm merely competent. I have experience writing Windows applications, but mostly for games, so I never used MFC, and I learned only just enough of the Windows API to put a minimal framework together; the meat of my programs was DirectX calls and game logic. I had used Visual C++ for some time, but had never explored many of its more advanced features. People like me -- who have a good amount of programming experience and a little background knowledge of how Windows operates -- are the ideal audience for this book.The various aspects of MFC-based programming are introduced briefly and effectively. (The book's table of contents can be viewed here at .com so you can see for yourself the array of topics the author covers.
