S14202    88WINQA.EXE    The 88WINQA.EXE file contains the source code for
                         the "Windows Q & A" column by Fran Finnegan.

S14203    88DOSQA.EXE    The 88WINQA.EXE file contains the source code for

S14201    THREADS2.EXE   The THREADS2.EXE file contains the source code for
                         the article named "Synchronizing Win32 Threads
                         Using Critical Sections, Semaphores, and Mutexes"
                         by Jeffrey Richter.

                         In Windows NT, serializing access to data and
                         system resources within processes and among
                         threads is nontrivial. Jeffrey Richter discusses
                         several techniques you can use to manage
                         multithreaded applications regardless of which
                         synchronization objects you use.

S14200    PORTING.EXE    The PORTING.EXE file contains the source code for
                         the article named "Port Your 16-bit Applications
                         to Windows NT Without Ripping Your Hair Out,"
                         by Scot Gellock.

                         A major design goal of Windows NT is to maintain
                         compatibility with its 16-bit sibling, but there's
                         still quite a bit to do. Although porting your
                         16-bit Windows-based application to Windows NT
                         sounds frightening, it's really not that difficult
                         a process.
