I scored:
	XLib Reference Manual: For R4-R5, Vol. 2
	X Toolkit Intrinsics Reference Manual for XII Release 4 and Release 5
	Programming With Qt
	Programming With Python
	The New Delphi 2 Programming Explorer
	Developing Windows Error Messages
	Charlie Calvert's Borland C++Builder Unleashed

for $23, shipped.  Lot of cruft in their list--never saw so many 'idiot's
guide' or '10 minute' or 'teach yourself' stuff in one place before.  Whew.

No doubt.  At a buck or two each, I'll gamble.
