Hey guys What's the easiest way to print a word on the screen using SDL? I've come across some tutorials. But they only introduced SDL_TTF. Using SDL_TTF will require to load a font, are there any easier mothod to print a word to the screen?

If you don't want to use TTF, bitmap fonts are an option. There is a nice page describing how to implement them here: http://cone3d.gamedev.net/cgi-bin/index.pl?page=tutorials/gfxsdl/tut4
