I've been using Perl for quite some time now and have used
half a dozen languages before it. Of course Perl is by far
the best 8-}
Unfortunately, I have to do some work on Win32 systems,
particularly using the Windows API. I'm at home in Unix
but totally lost when it comes to the Win32::API...
I just read through the Win32::API pod and there just isn't
a whole lot there. I don't understand how you *know* which
API function you are going to use for a particular task.
Is there *any* logic behind how this stuff is divided up?
I only plan on accessing the Windows API from Perl, so what
sources of information would you recommend to really get an
# How/why a particular API function is stored in a given
# How/where to find the parameters that are passed to the
function and returned from the function.
# How do the Microsoft Foundation Classes relate to the
Win32 API and are the MFC's useable/useful from Perl?
