There’s the “official” way to use C++. Then, there’s the wild stuff you can do if you’re willing to look under the covers, if the word “undocumented” doesn’t scare you. That’s the stuff Michael Flenov covers in Hackish C++ Pranks & Tricks.
Yes, there are some April Fool’s tricks here (for example, the classic “flying” Windows start button). But what you’ll really learn is how to make your Visual C++ programs smaller and faster. That, and plenty of neat network programming techniques (for instance, writing more compact applications by avoiding the standard MFC libraries; changing an IP address programmatically; creating a simple, efficient port scanner). With this book, you’ll take your first steps from mere Visual C++ programmer to old-fashioned hacker. Bill Camarda, from the March 2005 Read Only
