Windows taskbar help please

Hello world!

Can anyone please point to some good tutorials for getting started programming in windows, specifically placing icons in the windows task bar near the clock?

Suggestions on programming languages would help too, I would like the executable to be quite small.

I would like to write a very tiny program that shows an icon in the task-bar near the clock in XP (I would like it to work in 98 as well.)

This program needs to read a few files once in a while, and change the icon depending on the stuff in the files.

I have no idea how to do any windows programming like putting icons in the task bar.

I do, however, have a lot of programming experience using C, Pascal, Basic, and other languages, but non using PHP, Peal, or .net framework.

Thanks, Mark.

Thanks, mecanicu, for the lead.

I think this will help do the trick.

I never heard of CodeProject before.

They have tons of stuff in which I think I will be interested. I also believe I can contribute.

Mark.
