     The purpose of this is to show various Win32 Methods and some Theory. It creates a Win32 Extended class, it then Creates and Extended Window, it then starts to show that basics of Win32 Game Programming, that is an infinite loop. This shows a good theory of how to initialize variables in game programming. At first my approach was to initialize the variables in the loop and use a BOOL to say it was the first time in the loop, then on my third look at how the code was working I found the fastest way to set the first time variables, outside the loop, rather than having the computer check an if statement was true, this was the theory. This programme starts at a random position (the initializing theory), (in the loop) draws a line to a new random position, then sets the end of the line to the beginning of the new one (this is where the loop ends).

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
