So I was suggested in a different thread that to get the Win32 API (GUI?) for my C++ programs, a good way is to download SDL.
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!

I put the link to Lazy Foo's site on the other thread we were on.

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!
Yes, this is red text.
