I am looking for Documentation on Advanced C++ Programming Techniques for the Apple G3 Power MacIntosh Computer.  Can anyone provide me with a list of good resources, such as Books, Documentation files, etc?
I am converting a Windows 95 Application to the MacIntosh, and some tasks are proving very difficult for me.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

You're looking for "advanced" documentation, so I'll assume you have a fair amount of experience.  However, it isn't clear whether you are having difficulty with adapting to the Mac, or adapting to C++.

Apart from compiler idiosyncracies, I don't think there are many Mac-specific C++ issues.  So if C++ is the issue, I'd refer you to any of the thousands of C++ books out there.  The ones I use are:
  The C++ Programming Language, Stroustrup
  C++ Primer, Lippman
  Advanced C++, Coplien

If the issue is programming the Mac in general, a good intro to Mac programming is provided in "How to Write Macintosh Software", and in the (dated) "Macintosh Revealed" series by Scott Knaster.  They may be out of print, however.

Currently available at <http://www.devdepot.com> are:
  Macintosh C Programming Primer (Vol I and II)
  Learn C on the Macintosh

The Documentation CD that comes with Metrowerks has the following:
  Learn C on the Macintosh
  Learn C++ on the Macintosh

If the issue is converting from Windows to the Mac, the CD also has a book called "From Mac to Windows".  Although you want to go in the other direction, it provides some useful comparisons.

There's also a great on-line book, Macintosh C, complete with examples for Metrowerks, available at <http://cafe.AmbrosiaSW.com/macintosh-c/>

Hope some of this helps.
