Confident in using OS/2? Then Schildt and Goosey suggest trying your hand at describing programs with the Presentation Manager and managing the Application Program Interface (API). The authors don't pretend that programming in OS/2 is easy, but they provide a wealth of basic and understandable advice to guide you. The first part of the book introduces readers to essential concepts. The second and largest discusses the Presentation Manager. Readers learn how to deal with messages and how to work with the interface--dialog and message boxes, icons, menus, and windows. In the last section, you delve into multiprocessing, dynamic link libraries, and other features of API. The authors assume some experience with programming, especially C, and a fundamental appreciation of OS/2.
