  • Custom WinHelp Macros for Non-Programmers - Paul Arnote's winhelp guide to accessing Windows API functions directly from WinHelp files. Shows you how to work with the Windows API directly from 16-bit WinHelp, without creating DLLs. Note: For 32-bit Windows, many of the API functions simply add an "A" to the end of the 16-bit function name. You can look up the 32-bit versions of the Windows API functions in A Programmer's Reference to WinHelp by Don Lammers and Paul O'Rear.
