I keep starting to learn C and then lose interest because it's a high learning curve to get to the point where you can mess about with it and do interesting things, like you can with say Python. But something keeps bringing me back!
This time I want to stick at it. It occurred to me that most of the fun I've had with programming in the past has been as a result of playing with graphics and math. Plotting plasma, fractals, that kind of thing. I figure if I can start doing this with C, my motivation will increase exponentially.
But I can't seem to find a really simple way to implement graphics in C. All I want is to be able to plot points in a window with the full color palette and be able to load a bitmap into memory and analyze the pixels, to recreate some of the stuff I did years ago. Is there a library which supplies this kind of functionality at a low level of complexity?
