Title: Hi from hutch
Post by: Steve Hutchesson on December 05, 2009, 02:34:11 AM
I promised Theo I would join Jose's forum but I have been working like a machine in a sausage factory recently to update all of my Powerbasic code and tools to the two new versions with their new capacity so as usual I dragged the chain a little.

Nicely presented forum, many people and names that I know here and from a quick scan, a lot of well designed and well written code.

Regards,

hutch at movsd dot com

Hi Jose, Paul,

Its good to join a forum where you know so many of the people, once I get out of sausage factory mode I will actually be able to have a good look around at what everyone else is doing.

James,

yes it seems so but this is a good site with a lot of useful stuff on it so it makes sense to see you here.

This is a haven for PBer's that like to use the Windows API. My translation of the Platform SDK headers provide you access to the whole API and the COM subsystem, as well as to other SDKs such DirectX 9 and 10, the C runtime, an OLE container, a class that allows the use of SDK windows and controls as easily as using DDT, custom controls, etc. Currently, I'm updating the headers to Windows 7. There are also translations of the headers for many third party libraries.

And, accessible from my web page site ( http://www.jose.it-berater.org/index.html ), there are a number of reference guides: ADO, Common Controls, GDI/GDI+, ODBC, Structured Storage, WebBrowser Control, WMI, etc.

There are also a number of useful tools, such a programmer's editor, a type library browser and WMI template generators.

And then, each moderator has his own forum. This gives them more freedom, since each of us have different interests and/or skills.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of PBer's that are afraid of using anything that is not natively implemented in the compilers.
