SDL Digest, Vol 26, Issue 50

That was exactly what I was looking for. I’m having a little trouble
setting up Code::Blocks, but everything SDL-related was very easy to
figure out. Much better for me than VC. Thanks!

I personally use and love Code::Blocks IDE. It’s cross-platform, and
it makes it easier for me to port my code from Linux to Windows;
just have to make a build target with different libraries and I can
use the same project file to compile it.

I don’t own a Mac, so I never tried the Mac version, but I know
there is one available.

Maybe you can take a look at that and see if it suits your needs.
It’s Open Source and free.

As for the question of setting everything up, let me point you to
another website:

Articles 1 and 3 give the instructions for setting up SDL and extra
libraries (SDL_mixer, etc.)

The instructions for Visual Studio .NET 2008 Express should be what
you’re looking for, or there are also instructions for other

Good luck :slight_smile:
