Using the Win32 Security Functions. This book would be a useful complementary text to a book such as W. Example: Processing Exceptions and Completion. Within each chapter, after introducing the functionality area, such as process management or memory-mapped files, we discuss important Win32 functions and their relationships in detail. These books spend a great deal of time explaining how processes, virtual memory, interprocess communication, and preemptive scheduling work without showing how to use them in realistic situations.
The similarities in functionality and behaviour of these controllers is further exploited to develop a reusable software architecture for manual controller interfacing. Chapter 2 also introduces the Win32 programming style and conventions. Be aware that the name of the drive does not correspond to the logical drive letter assigned to the device. Programmers who are developing servers or other systems or components in which management of resources such as processes and threads is of primary importance and in which the user interface is of secondary importance. Example: Sequential File Processing with Mapped Files. Whether manual or automatic cleaning is possible is indicated in the Capabilities array property. The purpose of this book is to show how to use those features efficiently and in realistic situations to develop useful, high-quality, and high-performance applications.
This book would be a useful complementary text to a book such as W. This enthusiasm will show through at times, as it should. Students in the Technology Exchange Company's course 835, Win32 System Programming, which is based on this book, have provided invaluable suggestions. Organization Chapters are organized topically so that the features required in even a single-threaded application are covered first, followed by process and thread management features, and finally network programming in a multithreaded environment. Because most experienced programmers are already familiar with processes, virtual memory, and preemptive scheduling, the book spends little time introducing these concepts, but instead shows how they are implemented in Win32. Some exercises are easy, and a few are very challenging. Example: Explicitly Linking a File Conversion Function.
The second b This book was mistitled, it should have been called How to speed up your programs and improve their communication. Solid, up-to-date through kernel 6. The examples concentrate on scenarios that are likely to arise in practice, and in many cases the examples can be used as bases for real applications. When used with the other key properties of this class, this property allows all instances of this class and its subclasses to be uniquely identified. Lee, Yennum Huang, Deron Liang, and Hung-Yih Wang. Many aspects of program design and implementation are covered, and Win32 functions are used to create useful applications and to solve common programming problems. Examples in the early chapters are usually short, but the later chapters present longer examples when appropriate.
Example: A Simple Sequential File Copy. This book is, therefore, not comprehensive, but it explains the central features of the most important functions and shows how to use them in realistic programming situations. Tables listing the comparable functions are in Appendix B. Chapter 7 introduces Win32 processes, process management, and simple process synchronization. A value of -1 indicates that the rate could not be determined. Best regards, Martin Xie Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help and unmark them if they provide no help. Example: A Console Control Handler.
Readers who have made useful comments or provided encouragement at various stages include, in alphabetical order, Maury Bach, Ed Dekker, Peggy Harris, Shirley Kaltenbach, Joe Newcomer, Ali Rafieymehr, Edward Schiebel, and Larry Schmuhl. . This is Windows system programming from users point of view. Elissa Armour prepared the manuscript with patience, skill, and professionalism. Throughout this book, the text and the examples concentrate on interactions between functions rather than the functions themselves. It's been a wonderful 30 years together, and we look forward to many, many more.
Note, each entry of this array is related to the entry in the Capabilities array that is located at the same index. A frequent contributor to Dr. SetPowerState should return 0 if successful, 1 if the specified PowerState and Time request is not supported, and some other value if any other error occurred. The only other assumption, implicit in all the others, is a knowledge of C programming. Equipped with this knowledge, the reader will be able to use the comprehensive Microsoft reference documentation to explore details, advanced options, and the more obscure functions as requirements or interests dictate.
This new edition is fully updated to reflect Windows 2000, with valuable new coverage of network programming, threading, synchronization, the forthcoming Win64 migration, and other issues critical to high-end enterprise development. Chapter 6 treats Win32 memory management and shows how to use memory-mapped files. Chapter 16 describes the Win64 programming issues and how to plan for application migration and portability. Appendix C compares the performance of alternative implementations of some of the examples in the text so that you can gauge the trade-offs between Win32 features, both basic and advanced, and the C library. Some exercises are easy, and a few are very challenging.
