    SDL quick tutorial

    I'm making a program using SDL, and I figure most of it will be using the ShowBMP()function - simple enough. But there's a couple of effects I'd like to learn, and I'm pretty experienced with C++. Does anyone know where I can get a fairly quick tutorial on using SDL? I looked at their main site, but that's like 20 pages of tutorials, and most of that I'll never need. Thanks if you can help.

    There is no ShowBMP function in SDL. There is a SDL_LoadBMP and a SDL_BlitSurface, which combined, could display a BMP. I honestly just recommend going through the tutorial here.
