Win32 Full API from Microsoft

Although a few years old, the Win32.chm file from Microsoft is still a useful reference for those programming using the “flat” Windows API. It still covers 99% of all needs and is much more convenient and faster to use than the current MSDN and Windows SDK documentation because it is much smaller. It is a file that is possible to add to the help menu of your IDE or favorite editor and call up instantly, even offline. With each new version of Windows, Microsoft adds to the API but maintains backward compatibility by never subtracting. All of the information in Win32.chm is still valid today. In fact, if the same topic as one in Win32.chm is called up in the latest MSDN documentation it is usually word-for-word the same.
