# glut or windows for system commands

Hi, I just use the windows commands for re-sizing the window, getting mouse feedback and key presses. Apparently glut can do this as well - but most people seem to say it's too limited for a large game. Is this the case or is it as good as the windows cmnds ? cheers

I would also consider SDL, as it falls somewhere between glut and win32 in terms of ease and what can be done with it.

As far as game SDKs go, I've never used anything but ClanLib. Rarely do you need anything else!

Input is as easy as...

if(CL_Keyboard::get_keycode(CL_KEY_UP))   move_up();if(CL_Keyboard::get_keycode(CL_KEY_DOWN))   move_down();

Everything is simple in that way.
