Welcome to Simple & Easy web pages for the programmer.

NEW ! *free* professional Win32 DLL: my personal DLL rich of impossible to find features, like CCITT group IV-2d compression/decompression routines and Optical Mark Recognition.

New content (SmartCard programming) has been added as of july, 2003. I left unchanged the name of existing html pages to help come back those people who bookmarked some topics.

Most visited topics:

Please check the top bar for sections of your interest, and the left side menu (if present) for subjects to read about. I did my best to make things documented and easily understandable. Eventually ask for clarifications.

All of the code and the explanation in these pages are original and have been written by me (except differently noted). I do not claim that the code is perfect neither you can assume the contents are true. Information provided herein is derived from my understanding about how things do work.

I usually reply to emails asking for technical questions in few days (unless I am out of office) at the email address provided below.

I want to thank all those sites that link to my web pages. This makes it possible that people from avg 120 different IPs per day visit these pages (may 2002, and the statistic is growing in june).

Thanks all for visiting these pages. Thanks to Jon F. Zahornacky for his article about ASPI programming in Visual Basic. Thanks also to other programmers that helped me fix some errors and omissions: Hans R. from Germany, Pierre Leveille from California. Thanks to Fayez Mohamood for his article about porting old applications from Sequoia to ASPI. Thanks to Marco Monzani for his precious contribute to memory SmartCard programming.

I hope you will enjoy these pages and find them useful. Send e-mail for requests, comments, suggestions, and corrections.
