I'm looking to either download for free a nice API reference manual/guide so that I can save time instead of constantly having to jump over to the internet to look for valid API calls and how to use them (I program on a computer without internet access so it is a pain having to switch computers, print something, bring it back to the other computer, see if it works, repeat process... or (second choice) purchase a good API reference manual/guide for the same reason above.

if it is something I must purchase please let it be something that you have used yourself and you feel comfortable using on a regular basis.

Anyone have some good recommendations for either of these options? thanks for your help

Hi guidway,

the api viewer from www.mentalis.org (allapi.net) as was is pretty good, better than the standard one anyway. The API-Guide as well has some good examples as well as definitions but not as many as the viewer.
