A major feature of Acorn's RISC computers is the RISC OS operating system and the support it provides to programmers writing multi-tasking Desktop applications. This book provides Basic programmers with a complete introduction to all the techniques involved in writing multi-tasking Wimp programs to run within the RISC OS Desktop environment. No prior knowledge of the Wimp is assumed and the tutorial style of the book will enable all programmers to understand the concepts involved and to develop their skills in writing high quality programs for Acorn's RISC machines.

An accompanying disc, containing all the example programs described in the book, and additional applications, is available for £4.95 (inc. VAT) direct from the publishers. Our copy in the collection contains this accompanying 3.5" Floppy Disk.
