    11 This is the Simple DirectMedia Layer, a general API that provides low
       
    12 level access to audio, keyboard, mouse, joystick, 3D hardware via OpenGL,
       
    13 and 2D framebuffer across multiple platforms.
       
    14 
       
    15 The current version supports Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD,
       
    16 NetBSD, OpenBSD, BSD/OS, Solaris, iOS, and Android. The code contains
       
    17 support for other operating systems but those are not officially supported.
       
    18 
       
    19 SDL is written in C, but works with C++ natively, and has bindings to
       
    20 several other languages, including Ada, C#, Eiffel, Erlang, Euphoria,
       
    21 Go, Guile, Haskell, Java, Lisp, Lua, ML, Objective C, Pascal, Perl, PHP,
       
    22 Pike, Pliant, Python, Ruby, and Smalltalk.

    24 This library is distributed under the zlib license, which can be found
       
    25 in the file "COPYING".
       
    26 
       
    27 The best way to learn how to use SDL is to check out the header files in
       
    28 the "include" subdirectory and the programs in the "test" subdirectory.
       
    29 The header files and test programs are well commented and always up to date.
