I want to draw text in Linix''s graphic mode (SDL''s). I do not want all letters kept in one bmp file. Is there something called "ASCII Charactars pixels library"? So, how can I draw text on screen without system text API? can Anyone help me?

Check out FreeType, its a free font system that works on windows/linux etc. You give it a string to render, and it tells you what pixels to plot (thats a very simplistic view, but basically how it works).
