    11 Simple DirectMedia Layer is a cross-platform development library designed
    12 to provide low level access to audio, keyboard, mouse, joystick, and graphics
    13 hardware via OpenGL and Direct3D. It is used by video playback software,
    14 emulators, and popular games including Valve's award winning catalog
    15 and many Humble Bundle games.
    16 
    17 The current version supports Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, and Android.
    18 The code contains support for other operating systems but those are not
    19 officially supported.
    20 
    21 SDL is written in C, but works with C++ natively, and has bindings to
    22 several other languages, including C#, Python and more in progress.
    23 
    24 This library is distributed under the zlib license, which can be found
    25 in the file "COPYING.txt".
    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.
