Windows Animation Programming with C++
Animation is useful for many types of computer programs, especially those developed for Microsoft Windows. It is central to applications such as computer games, tutorials, demos and simmulations. It can also be used to visually enhance almost any type of program where visual impact is of primary importance. This text and disk is a practical and non-intimidating introduction to the fundamentals of animation programming for Windows using C++. It teaches basic programming and gives many tips for designing effective graphic images and using C++ to encapsulate code and data. The accompanying 3.5" IBM-compatable high-density disk provides a set of ready-to-use C++ animation classes which can be used to add animation in the reader's programs.
