SDL and OpenGL

Recommended Posts

Hello all. Not exacly openGL, but related to my openGL programming. Are any of you using SDL (http://www.libsdl.org/) for your openGL programming projects? I just read about SDL on gamedev.net and it looks like the answer to all my problems (well maybe not all). Endre

Thanks.

I'll take a look at it.

What parts of SDL do you use? Just the windows init part or do you use it for other stuff too, like sound and input?

Yea, SDL is a fine lib. Sad most people don't understand the concept behind the keybord input (just look at the SDL port of lesson 7 and you'll know what I mean).

Also very nice is SDL_image which can handel all popular image formats (BMP, PNM (PPM/PGM/PBM), XPM, LBM, PCX, GIF, JPEG, PNG, TGA, and TIFF)
