Programmers documentation project
Wed May 12 18:46:00 GMT 1999
For the upcoming release of V IDE 0.5, I'm collecting
the most useful free documentation for programmers
in HTML format for a inclusion in the VIDE help
package. There is a main page with easy links to
all the topics. My list includes:
* V and VIDE, of course
* GNU gcc/g++:
* C/C++ libraries
* GNU Tools
* HTML - Bare bones guide
All these docs are either GNUed or not restricted for
redistribution. They are all available at various sources,
but I actually had to spend a long time gathering the
documents I've included so far - I've tired to find
the best free docs I could. I've also oriented my
picks to how I program. I've also tried to get
just the best documents I could. There were quite
a few I rejected.
Now - I'd like a little help.
First, I'm looking for good, free HTML format docs for:
C++ - a short summary of the language, syntax, etc.
Win32 API in HTML
Linux/Unix system functions
X Windows reference
A better HTML reference? So far, the Bare Bones Guide
is the best free doc I could find.
If you know of a source for any of these, please let me know.
Second, do you see anything blatant missing from my list?
Any good HTML docs especially relevant for programmers?
What would be a good set of basic refs for Cygwin?
Third, have I included anything that is really useless?
So far, the package is 3.7Megs Zipped (it is available
at ftp://objectcentral.com/videhelp.zip ). This is pretty
big, but it is nice to have all these on my machine in
one place, and I think others might like the package,
