    The closest to graphics I've ever gotten is curses. I'll leave it open as to whether I mean the library of functions or the library of explatives.
    The information given in this message is known to work on FreeBSD 4.8 STABLE.
    *The above statement is false if I was too lazy to test it.*
    Please take note that I am not a technical writer, nor do I care to become one.
    If someone finds a mistake, gleaming error or typo, do me a favor...bite me.
    Don't assume that I'm ever entirely serious or entirely joking.

    Drdroid,

    You may want to consider using svgalib (www.svgalib.org). A simple and powerful graphics library that provides low-level to your graphics engine. Learning curve is not steep. It's a bit out-dated though but still gets your job done.

    Alternatively if you are looking for something more high-level, check out QT or GTK/GDK which makes use of the X window environment.

    Hope that helps
