Howdy folks. I've just special ordered some books from Addison Wesley
called the following:
Amiga Rom Kernel Reference Guide: Libraries & Devices
Amiga RK Ref Guide: Includes & Autodocs
Amiga RK Ref Guide: Intuition
However, there was a third book, called "Exec" (subtitled that actually),
which Addison says is out of print.
Which are these books? Is Exec amalgamated into one of the others? Is the
includes & autodocs coming with a disk or something? I don't have to type
in anything do I?
Tell me about these books.. I'm not completely sure what versions they
are, but I *DO* know that they are published very recently (ie: within a
year of today).
Thanks for any information you could provide. I'm just a startup
programmer, and though I've been able to hammer together some decent
amitcp/etc programs using my little compiler, I'd like to have some decent
compatibility and functions of the later operating system. (I drool at the
thought of not having to go a level or three lower than all the other
programmers do. No one can answer my questions when I ask them what the
*ACTUAL* data request structures are comprised of when requesting that the
console switch itself into RAW mode.. a basic question, but it seems to
stump everyone, and it's not in any of the programming ref manuals I have.
They eep telling me SetMode(Input(), 0) or something, which apparently is
something they do all the time with SAS/C.. I don't have SAS/C..)
But enough of my woes. The books questions is what I came here to talk
