Overview

Windows NT/2000 Native API Reference is absolutely unique. Currently, documentation on WIndows NT's native APIs can only be found through access to the source code or occasionally Web sites where people have chosen to share bits of insight gained through reverse engineering. This book provides the first complete reference to the API functions native to Windows NT and covers the set of services that are offered by Windows NT to both kernel- and user-mode programs. Ideal for the intermediate and advanced level user- and kernel-mode developers of Windows systems, this books is devoted to the NT native API and consists of documentation of the 210 routines included in the API. Also included are all the functions added in Windows 2000.

Meet the Author

Gary Nebbett first started working with operating systems when he joined the MultiMIRTOS development team at Standard Telecommunication Laboratories immediately after graduating from London University in 1982. (MultiMIRTOS was a real-time embedded operating system for the Intel 8086 processor.) An interest in operating systems having been awakened, Gary tried to develop tools to trace system calls, reconstruct deleted files, and capture network traffic whenever he subsequently encountered an operating system (such as, VMS, UNIX, or NT). Gary lives in Basel, Switzerland. In his free time he enjoys squash, cross-country skiing, walking in the Alps, mountain biking in the Black Forest, and tackling the occasional cryptic crossword. He has seldom been known to decline the offer of another glass of port (preferably accompanied by some more Stilton).
