I downloaded SDL-1.2.15, but now I want to know how to use it in CodeBlocks, to make a basic C++ program use the Win32 API.
Thanks in Advance.
Regards, King of the Boneheads.
I use Code::Blocks with GNU GCC Compiler, and Allegro 5 Libraries.
I'm a W.I.P., please be patient with me!

"The code you write when you learn a new language is shit.
You either already know that and you are wise, or you don’t realize it for many years and you are an idiot. Either way, your learning code is objectively shit." - L. Spiro

That site has a whole once-over on configuring SDL to work with Code::Blocks for Windows(that's your current platform, right?).
I'll put the exact link here to the tutorial: --> http://lazyfoo.net/SDL_tutorials/lesson01/windows/codeblocks/index.php
I know you'll probably (I was the first time) be a bit confused with the settings and such, but just read thoroughly if it's somewhat difficult, and if you have any problems you can report back here!
