Prerequisite Knowledge

Fastgraph is a programming tool, which means programmers are its intended audience. For this reason, we assume you have a knowledge of programming. A specific knowledge of Windows programming would certainly be helpful but is not required to begin using Fastgraph. Additionally, a knowledge of converting numbers between binary, decimal, and hexadecimal is assumed.

If you're new to programming in the Windows environment, we recommend looking at one or more of the books listed in the Windows Programming References section. We'll discuss basic Windows programming concepts that relate to Fastgraph as we go along, but a full treatment of Windows programming or the Windows API is beyond the scope of this manual.

Most examples and code snippets in the help file are presented in C/C++, C++Builder, Delphi, and Visual Basic. Fastgraph's SETUP program can install versions of the examples for any of these languages, in addition to MFC and PowerBASIC. Finally, we'd like to point out that the examples should be read not by themselves, but as part of the surrounding text.
