, get the content of a Surface as a perl-string

Hi everybody,

i wrote a perl module that can write pictures into an
AVI stream. For recording animations i’d like to get
the content of a SDL::Surface somehow. I don’t see
any way to get that at the moment.

Also, seems to be unavailable, does anybody
know when it is back or if there’s a mirror?

Another thing: I had to change, as
generating a Surface from a perl string always gives
an unnecessary warning.

Thanks for any hints,
