PWB combines the following features: u A full-featured programmer’s text editor. u An extensible “build engine” which allows you to assemble and link your programs using the PWB environment. The build engine can be extended to support any programming tool. u Error-message browsing. Once a build completes, you can step through the build messages, fixing errors in your source programs. u A Source Browser. When working with large systems, it is often difficult to remember where program symbols are accessed and defined. The Source Browser maintains a database that allows you to go quickly to where a given variable, function, type, class, or macro is defined or referenced. u An extensible Help system. The Microsoft Advisor Help system provides a complete reference on using PWB and MASM. You can also write new Help files and seamlessly integrate them into the Help system to document your own library routines or naming conventions. u A macro language that can control editing functions, program builds, and other PWB operations. For increased flexibility, you can write extensions to PWB. These extensions can perform tasks that are inconvenient in the PWB macro language.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
