Decent Win32All Documentation

P: n/a
Does anyone know of any decent documenation on Mark Hammond's win32all
modules? I have tried looking at the documentation .chm file that comes
with it, Python Programming On Win32 (OReilly book) and ActiveState's
documentation and have found them all lacking -- yes I need it broken
down to me.

What I am hoping to do is to work on some Python versions of PSTools. I
think the win32 modules will be perfect for helping me do this,
however, I am having a (more than it should be) difficult time making
sense of the win32process module.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Harlin Seritt

Harlin,

I usually first refer to MSDN for the win32 API and other functions. If
some definitions are not clear and also to make sure that the Python
version of the function call corresponds to the C function, I refer to
Activestate's Win23all documentation.
Typically what I do is import win32process, dir(win32process), pick out
a function and google it; the first couple of matches are usually the
MSDN documentation for that function. The left bar on the MSDN page
lists all the functions in the process API, so you can get click happy
and read away.

Kartic,

Thanks for the help. It's good to get a different perspective on
something (i.e. MSDN, dir() etc).

I stringly recommend the platform sdk which includes documentation of
*ALL* Windows APIs, sample code etc. It is very easily searchable.
win32all is a very thin wrapper over the underlying Windows API.
