I have been programming in C for a while now as an Mech eng student, so its all been calculations and stuff up to now, but I have recently wanted to be able to add basic graphics. I have installed FINALLY after a lot of hell the SDL libraries and it all works in Codeblocks - the editor i am using.
I am struggling to find a way to draw to the screen for instance just a box around Hello World! would get me on my way, the graphics dont need to be animated, but i cant find a decent tutorial for C anywhere. Please can someone help me with a basic tamplate c file that will draw a box say 2 pixels thick around a printf statement, just to get it to look a bit nicer.
P.S is C dieing out because everytime i do a search for C SDL tutorials, they seem to all really be in C++???
