Basic SDL Graphics

Testing some basic windo and rendering functions with SDL library in C++.


SDL lifecycle:

Window management:



Running the Example

See example.cpp for details. It links with the SDL library and uses a few informational APIs to get basic verification things are working.

A makefile compiles and runs the examples:

$ make
c++ -std=c++17 -Wall -O3 `sdl2-config --cflags --libs`    example.cpp   -o example

This page is a web-friendly rendering of my project notes shared in the LittleCodingKata GitHub repository.

LittleCodingKata is my collection of programming exercises, research and code toys broadly spanning things that relate to programming and software development (languages, frameworks and tools).

These range from the trivial to the complex and serious. Many are inspired by existing work and I'll note credits and references where applicable. The focus is quite scattered, as I variously work on things new and important in the moment, or go back to revisit things from the past.

This is primarily a personal collection for my own edification and learning, but anyone who stumbles by is welcome to borrow, steal or reference the work here. And if you spot errors or issues I'd really appreciate some feedback - create an issue, send me an email or even send a pull-request.
