About the downloads
The downloads have been arranged in three categories: source code, executable programs, and utilities (accessed by clicking on the links below).
The source code consists of the MASM32, QBASIC, PowerBASIC, Visual Basic, and C++ code that appears in the book (page references and program names are listed). In order to simplify downloading, files of a similar type have been zipped together.
The executable programs are compiled versions of the source code (and have corresponding filenames but with .exe extensions). Once again, page references and program names are listed and files of a similar type have been zipped together in order to simplify downloading.
The utilities comprise dynamic link libraries and other programs (some in zipped files). A brief description of each program is provided as well as acknowledgment of the author and/or program distributor.
