For the past year, CVF users have been told that a new book on developing WIndows applications using Visual Fortran was in the works. This book: "Compaq Visual Fortran: A Guide to Creating Windows Applications" by Dr. Norman Lawrence, is scheduled for publication in late December by Digital Press, an imprint of Butterworth-Heinemann.
Quoting from the publisher's blurb: "The book teaches CVF programming progressively, beginning with simple tasks and building up to writing professional-level Win32 applications. Readers will master the powerful new CVF graphical user interface and will learn the intricacies of Windows development from a CVF perspective. Master QuickWin, the Win32 APIs including multiple document interfaces, Open GL with 3D and interactive graphics, DLLs, multi-threading applications, and COM and automation objects."
Many of us on the CVF engineering team have reviewed this book, and I think that it will be what many CVF users have been looking for.
The book's suggested retail price will be $44.95, but Digital Press is offering 35% off for orders before January 31, 2002. For information on the book, or to order, see http://www.bh.com/compaqbookstore
