Hello everyone...

For last couple of days, I've been following LazyFoo's SDL tutorials and then I came across this term "blit". I decided to check out SDL's documentation but I could not understand. I decided to just memorize this particular part from the tutorials. But as I progressed, it became a bit harder for me to understand the tutorials. From then onwards I've been itching to know what is "Blit"? :)

The simple answer is that it means 'draw'.

 

SDL_BlitSurface() means SDL_DrawTheSurface().


It's perfectly fine to abbreviate my username to 'Servant' rather than copy+pasting it all the time.

More specifically, it means copying a block of pixels from a source surface to a destination.
