Hi, guys! I’m completely new to SDL. I’ve heard about it many times, but it’s the first time I’m actually trying to use it.
Here’s my concern. I haven’t used SDL before because I don’t like my programs to have dependencies. I program mainly for GNU/Linux, but would like my programs to be easy to compile for other platforms (mainly Windows). But I don’t want a user to have to install anything else when they want to run my program. I want it to be portable, so they just copy the files to a directory and run it and no dependency is missing.
I have read in the Wiki that static linking is possible, but not recommended. Even I tried to do it and couldn’t get to accomplish it, so if it’s hard and also not recommended, I wonder what the correct way to get what I want is.
Can you guys point me in the right direction? Thank you very much!
