This article is designed to give the reader a general introduction to the functionality of the Microsoft Windows pen driver by explaining what the source does and how it does it. It is assumed that the reader has a basic understanding of pen driver functionality and is familiar with the Windows Device Driver Kit (DDK). The files that make up the pen driver can be found in the Windows for Pen Computing OEM adaptation kit and in the Windows version 3.1 DDK directory. The files of interest are: DISABLE.ASM, ENABLE.ASM, FILTER.ASM, INSTALL.ASM, LOAD.ASM, MISC.ASM, PLAY.ASM, WACOM.ASM, and DIALOGS.C. It is important that these source files be read in conjunction with this article.

The first section provides some background information about the pen driver, the second section introduces the source files used to build the driver, and the third section describes the pen driver source code in detail.
