Re: New anti-aliased graphics library for BBCSDL

The only difference I can spot is at the base of the heart, where GDIP gives a fine, extended point, while aagfxlib gives a square butt - unless that's a coding issue? I note that the internal "point" is rounded in both cases. I raised the same point, and this was Richard's response: > The aagfxlib...

New anti-aliased graphics library for BBCSDL

Richard has been working on a new library for BBCSDL that renders various kinds of shape with smooth (anti-aliased) edges, such as lines of abritrary thickness, PolyBezier curves, filled and (thick) outline circles and (optionally angled) ellipses, and polygons.

Colourful vectorballs

Nothing new here really. Just the result of some experimental tinkering with BBCSDL and C.

Currently BBCSDL Linux (Ubuntu/Mint) 32/64-bit and Raspberry Pi (Raspbian) only.

Re: Loading a shared object/library into BBCSDL (Linux)

Hmm, another case of RTFM, I guess! :D

Loading a shared object/library into BBCSDL (Linux)

...and accessing its functions.

Dynamic shared objects (.so files) are the Linux equivalent of DLLs on the Windows platform.

Does anyone know how to load them into BBCSDL (Linux), and to access the functions contained therein?


Regards,
David.

Welcome. It's rather quiet around here these days, as you've probably noticed!

I don't know if you're aware of my website: http://www.proggies.uk/

You will find links and various other resources there.

New BBCSDL games website/web page?

I'm thinking of adding a new section to my website called ' BBCSDL Games ', dedicated to games (and perhaps some other software - libraries, etc.) written for the cross-platform version of BBC BASIC. Would anyone reading this be interested in contributing BBCSDL-based games? Contributions would NOT ...
