First, this is actually one of those posts where you should have
crossposted to comp.os.os2.programmer.misc (don't worry, I've taken
care of it).  The book I used (which gave me sufficient information)
was "OS/2 2.1 Workplace Shell Programming" by Stefano Maruzzi.
Oddly, the book is more about PM programming than the WPS.  There are
critics of the book, citing errors, etc.  There are other PM
programming books out there, but I'm not familiar with the titles.
I'm sure somebody from c.o.o.p.m will have something to say. :-)

      Frustrated with C, C++, Pascal, Fortran?  Ada95 _might_ be for you!
          For all sorts of interesting Ada95 tidbits, run the command:


1. Books - Looking for a book regarding VisualAge C++ programming......

Hello -
        I am learning to use the tools available with the VisualAge C++ 3.0
compiler.  I am looking for a book (other than the books that came
with the software) that covers the Visual Builder etc in more depth.
If anyone could recommend a book, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks for your help......
