    C Graphics Engine

    Where would I be able to find either an open source C graphics(rendering) engine, or a commercial C only(not C/C++, only C) graphics engine.

    If there are no links, where can I find some information on writing my own(Either Pure C, DirectX, or OpenGL)?

    Thanks for any help, hopefully someone has some links lying around.

    Creating your own: Game Programming Links
    And check on sourceforge if you want one already made (there are a few), http://sf.net

    If you don't understand a little about graphics I doubt obtaining a library for this would help.

    www.gamedev.net
    www.gamasutra.com

    They both have tons of articles on graphics. Also just google it. You will get thousands and thousands of hits.

    To render what? On what Operating System?

    I've created a small one using OpenGL for the windows platform, although it is sloppy and unoptimized. I'd like to find one that is cleaner that I may add to and learn from. I have seen many of the links already posted on this board. I program in C and use OpenGL(with glfw windowing framework). Hope that helps a little.



    [edit] I'm still having a hard time finding anything on sourceforge that is C specific(not object oriented) . Here's my search "C Graphics Engine -C++"

    Maybe the double plus cancels out the single minus? :-P
