MFC...the horror.

It's funny you mention this Paul, since I've gotten used to WinForms too but
now find myself having to go back and re-engineer an MFC app I wrote ages
ago. It's awful. I don't know of any websites, but a good book is
"Introduction to MFC Programming with Visual C++" by Richard M. Jones. It's
pretty old since it is using VC++ 4 in the book (maybe he wrote an updated
edition), but it does a good job of explaining the fundamental architecture
of an MFC app (Application class, CWndFrame, Doc/View architecture,
messaging, etc). It's still very true to the original design. I'm using this
myself to try and get re-familiarized with this dinosaur api.
