I’m a beginner programmer - I use Dev-C++ and I have managed to compile a
"Hello World" program and that’s about it! But I want to go further and I
picked up somewhere that libsdl is nice! and I’d really like to try it out…
Now here’s my problem:
I downloaded the SDL-devel… for mingw32 and unpacked it. There I find
several documents talking about makefiles etc but i don’t know how to do all
that so I move on. And then I find a file name i386-mingw32msvc.zip! Aha! I
unpack it and find several folders and files. Now, I have read on some
tutorials here and there that “lib” and “dll”-files is what it’s all about!
Well i look in the lib folder and find what seems to be 3 lib-files and 1
dll-file. I must have hit the Jackpot! …Then something else hits me - what
do I do now? Are these really the files I’m looking for? Why are there 3 lib
files? Where do I put them? Who can I ask? - In other words - How do I
’enable’ SDL on my computer?
…I kinda have this feeling that these are very trivial questions and maybe
not the kind of questions that this newsgroup deal with. In that case I’d be
forever happy if someone could give me a link to some place somewhere where
I belong so that I can continue my quest for knowledge! I will not go
quietly into the night!
