    Question Which Libraries for SDL??

    Okay good fellows!
    I just want to start the ABC of SDL with all your help... I've downloaded bunch of game programs that use SDL library. I would like to mess up with 'em so that I get the feeling of it...
    I went to this site http://www.libsdl.org/download-1.2.php

    to download the libraray but was lost... don't know which ones to download.. Can anyone please tell me which ones do I need to download for WIN32??

    SDL is a cross-platform and cross-language library so there's
    no specific Win32 library, Just download the standard one.

    which is standard??

    [edit] SDL is a cross-platform and cross-language library so there's

    The webpage doesn't say which is the standard one to download.
    So am I supposed to download one from the development libraries or from runtime libraries or both...?
    There are so many zip files...
    Anyone here has downloaded any particular file...??
    Thanks in advance!

    Go to the download page:

    for Visual Studio development download
    SDL-devel-1.2.5a-VC6.zip

    if you're using MinGW (or a Dev-C++ user) download
    SDL-devel-1.2.5a-mingw32.tar.gz

    the runtime libraries are included with both of those downloads.
