Hey Chris,


  


I am definitely interested in helping with this. Perhaps we should make a 
test module that tests just these integration.


  


It will get latest branches of the 3 projects and run tests.


  


What do you think?

On Thu, Aug 15, 2013 at 1:11 PM, Chris Marshall devel.chm...@gmail.com
wrote:

 PDL/SDL/OpenGL users-
 With the recently announced SDL2 release and in-progress work
 to provide perl bindings for the same, I wanted to share my
 thoughts for leveraging joint capabilities of these three
 modules with a couple of specific points.
 1) SDL2 brings integrated hardware acceleration via Direct3D and/or
OpenGL to both 2D and 3D graphics.  This offers the possiblity
of using modern OpenGL API features like renderbuffers for
computation and display.
 2) PDL provides a high level array computation language that
can be used as a back-end engine for SDL applications and
visualization.  The PDL::Graphics::TriD currently uses
the OpenGL-1.x fixed pipeline interface.
 3) Perl OpenGL currently supports the original fixed-pipeline
display process of OpenGL-1.x and some 2.x functionality.
Work is underway to update the support to modern OpenGL
APIs such as OpenGL-3.x, OpenGLES,...
 The common thread here is OpenGL, and I think that by updating
 the OpenGL use and interfaces to the modern programmable display
 pipeline we can generate significant synergy between the
 projects:
 1) Update Perl OpenGL to modern OpenGL (In progress by slowed
by the fact that my development time is spread too thin.
Am I the only one with a whole slew of projects for which
I know *exactly* what and how to do them but not having
the time to execute?  :-)
 2) Refactor PDL::Graphics::TriD to use modern OpenGL for
display rather than the fixed-function pipeline of OpenGL
API 1.x.
 3) Update PDL to support (simply) the use of arbitrary
sources of data (e.g., I'm thinking framebuffer and
renderbuffer objects but deliberately being more
general since I could also imagine some sort of
generator that could act like a piddle for computation
with PDL).
 4) Add GPGPU support to PDL computation.
 5) Add support to the perl SDL2 interface to allow easy
mix and match operation with PDL for computation, IO,
and visualization.  I could see PDL+GPGPU computing
working well with realtime game or display computations.
 Well, the above ideas have a some hand waving to make them
 happen, but I think the pieces are there.
 Comments?

 oh, also...

 some other nice things with Travis, is that (afaik) it can be configured
 to send emails and irc messages after a build

 so we could get Travis to send build messages to #sdl on irc.perl.org,
 (or create a 'build' mailing list)


Request comments on new types of constants

2013-08-11 Thread Kartik Thakore
Hey Guys,

What do you think of doing this for constants:

XS plug
https://github.com/PerlGameDev/SDL2/blob/experimental/src/Core/Constants.xs#L17

Mapped directly to

https://github.com/PerlGameDev/SDL2/blob/experimental/lib/SDL2/Constants.pm#L96

This way we don't have to update their values if libSDL2 changes them.

Re: adding texture scaling functionally to SDL2_perl

 hi sdl-devel
 i am planning/researching about adding a small amount of SDL2_Perl code into 
 my existing SDL_Perl app, for a framerate increase
 i have one long-standingly slow bit of code in my app, that i would like to 
 replace with SDL2 code
 my slow code is a SDL::GFX::Rotozoom::surface() call. but SDL2 has 'hardware 
 accelerated' stretching/scaling/zooming [1], yay!
 i checked the SDL2 version of ./SDL2_rotozoom.c, and it is still using the 
 current slow software method (no changes) 
 but the good news is… there seems to be a preferred method to achieve this 
 fast hardware scaling in SDL2
 SDL2's SDL_RenderCopyEx() function [2] will scale a texture using a fast HW 
 method, (but...i have not benchmarked my theory yet)
 my plan is to attempt to add some missing SDL2 functionality to SDL2_Perl.
 then swap my slow SDL::GFX::Rotozoom::surface() call, with the faster SDL2 
 equivalent
 so basically, i need to implement the 'test/testrendercopyex.c' demo [3], in 
 SDL2_Perl, 
 and add access to these missing SDL2 functions in SDL2_Perl...
 SDL_LoadBMP(),
 SDL_CreateTextureFromSurface(),
 SDL_FreeSurface() 
 SDL_RenderGetViewport()
 SDL_CreateTexture()
 SDL_SetRenderTarget()
 SDL_RenderCopy()
 SDL_RenderCopyEx(),
 SDL_QueryTexture()
 fyi: the testrendercopyex.c demo is nice and simple, it...
 - loads a .bmp file to a surface
 - converts the surface to a HW texture
 - then randomly moves, rotates and scales that texture around the window, in 
 a loop
 i believe this demo is using the new hardware-accelerated scaling on a 
 'texture' in SDL2

 Short on time at the moment, but I have the complete code on a github repo:

 video in t_data/ardrone_video_stream_**dump.bin, though that contains the

 out by bin/uav_video_dump.

 I'll try to come up with a more concise example later this evening.

 Am 23.07.2013 23:44, schrieb tmur...@wumpus-cave.net:

 I'm working on a project involving decoding h.264 video frames with
 ffmpeg and then outputting them to an SDL surface. From what I've
 read, the YUV overlay is meant for this kind of job, but I'm having
 trouble getting it to work with the Perl bindings.

 One thing that seems odd to me in the Perl docs is:

 As of release 2.3 direct right to overlay is disable.

 Besides the typos, this troubles me because it seems that disabling
 the feature makes the YUV overlay completely useless.

 Not to be deterred, I wrote this code:

 SDL::Video::lock_YUV_overlay( $overlay );
 # The order of array indexen is correct, according to:
 # 
 http://dranger.com/ffmpeg/**tutorial02.htmlhttp://dranger.com/ffmpeg/tutorial02.html
 my $pitches = $overlay-pitches;
 $$pitches[0] = scalar @{ $last_vid_frame[0] };
 $$pitches[2] = scalar @{ $last_vid_frame[1] };
 $$pitches[1] = scalar @{ $last_vid_frame[2] };
 my $pixels = $overlay-pixels;
 $$pixels[0] = $last_vid_frame[0];
 $$pixels[2] = $last_vid_frame[1];
 $$pixels[1] = $last_vid_frame[2];
 SDL::Video::unlock_YUV_**overlay( $overlay );

 SDL::Video::update_rects( $sdl, $bg_rect );
 SDL::Video::display_YUV_**overlay( $sdl, $bg_rect );

 When I run this, I get an error about not being able to find the
 pitches() method against the class SDL::Overlay.  Eh?  (Same thing
 happens for the pixels() method if I put that call first.) I can call
 width() and format() and such just fine on that object.

 If needed, I can handle the overlay entirely at the C level.  I may
 end up doing that anyway; the C array that comes out of ffmpeg is
 being transformed into a Perl array-of-arrays, which is going to be an
 expensive operation to do for 720p at 30 fps in realtime. But I'd like
 to try this at the Perl level for now.

 I might also have to convert the output from ffmpeg using
 sws_scale().  It's coming out in YUV420P mode, and I'm using YV12 to
 init the overlay. But I'd like to get the above working before messing
 with that.

I was trying to send a friend a simple SDL script with strawberry perl to

 2/ install SDL + all necessary modules

Weird ness with SDL2 rendering

Fwd: [SDL] SDL 2.0 API stabilization

2013-02-22 Thread Kartik Thakore
SDL 2.0 API is STABLE! I will be working on getting libperl-sdl2 started.
Any thoughts on name space?

SDL2 seems more logical. Would there be any issues with perl for having a
number in the package name?

We're on the road to release for SDL 2.0.

To that end, most of the existing APIs are stable, and we'll only change
them if it's critical.
There are a few things which are still being considered, such as the iOS
event handling, and touch/mouse event semantics, but by and large the API
is set for release.

Please report bugs which are affecting you in the current snapshot:

welcome:

  Hi Chris,
 
  The performance is poor of course.
 
  I tried to use the piddle's pointer (-dataref or so) but it looks like
  it is not pointing to a usable memory area.
 
  $piddle-get_dataref returns a scalar reference to a perl
  PV whose string content _is_ the data block.  You should
  be able to get the starting location for the pixel data (i.e.,
  the string) via SvPV.
 
  It looks like there are more than 4 bytes per pixel, and libSDL can't
  handle that.
 
  Per the above, the get_dataref returns an RV to an Sv with
  the data in the string.  It is just a contiguous block of memory.
  As far as I know, all the SDL memory buffers are just
  contiguous blocks of memory (ignoring variations due to
  stride, alignment,...)
 
  The pdl.pl example is working, I see colored squares.
 
  I don't know what the output should look like.  I'm
  cc-ing our PDL mailing list in the hopes that someone
  with access to both PDL and SDL can give it a try.
 
  Is there a cygwin install of SDL and libSDL?
 
  I think we should need to improve our examples btw, there is not a
  single comment, thats bad.
  In the pdl.pl is a var $ref, which is never used. Thats a bit
 confusing.
 
  I think the ref is from a previous iteration in the code
  trying to get things working.
 
  Speaking of documentation, do you have any on the
  actual perl-libSDL bindings an data structures?  Trying
  to read XS is not the simplest way to sort things out---
  especially since I am far for an expert on some of the

  I would expect the performance to be *very* poor
  since the image data is essentially being converted
  from packed byte data to a perl list and then poked
  a byte at a time into the SDL surface data.
 
  The better approach would be to wrap a PDL object
  (a.k.a. piddle) into an SDL surface.  Then you could
  just lock, copy the data via a PDL direct assignment,
  unlock and use SDL.  There is an examples/pdl.pl
  that shows how to do the wrapping.
 
  BUT, I took a look at the xs code and it appears
  that your SDL_Surface objects no longer use a
  packed-string representation for the SDL surface
  data.  If that is the case, I would be surprised if
  the pdl.pl example works at all now.
 
  If someone could verify this, I would appreciate it.
  If that is the case, it should be straightforward to
  modify the SDL_CreateRGBSurfaceFrom routine
  to allow for a SvPV for pixel data as one alternative.
 
  Given the power of PDL for whole-image data

  our user and developer communities.

  Hi Kartik-

 I don't have a working SDL module install that I could
 check things out on.


 Hi guys,

 Chris, 'cpan -fi SDL' should install SDL-2.54 on your SPP. (You need force
 because a couple of the SDL tests fail.)
 During the 'perl build.pl' stage of Alien::SDL you'll be prompted to
 select which library package to install. I took option 1 because it was
 RECOMMENDED, though option 2 is probably more recent.

 I've run the demo at 
 https://gist.github.com/**3772701https://gist.github.com/3772701but that 
 just produces:

 C:\_32\pscrpt\pdlperl pdl2surface.pl

 And same error for
 https://github.com/**PerlGameDev/SDL_Manual/blob/**
 master/code_listings/pdl.plhttps://github.com/PerlGameDev/SDL_Manual/blob/master/code_listings/pdl.pl

 I don't know what needs to be done in order that a video device becomes
 available. (I'm probably not the sharpest tool in the shed to be using for
 this ;-)

 Hi pals!

 In the last time we did, in my opinion, a big mistake. In test scripts we
 checked for libpng like: SDL::Config-has('png'). But this didnt ever
 returned true, Simply because the HAVE_PNG was only set when actually
 building that lib in SDL. (Note: not Alien::SDL)
 This -has() method works pretty fine for stuff like SDL_gfx, since it
 will return true if we found SDL_gfx*.h. But there was no check for png.h
 at this stage. So even if we found libpng in system dirs or when we build
 it on our own, -has('png') never returned true.

 I changed the tests so it checks now for libpng in the shlib-hash that we
 get from Alien::SDL. This hash contains all found/build libs, and their
 path.

 And why does it fail then?
 BSD. LibPNG needs libz to run. Normally you would think that libpng is
 actually linked against libz, but hey, the BSD ppl dont think that way. I
 dont know the reasons but they decided to somehow build libpng without
 linking against libz.
 when you do: ldd /path/to/libpng.so you will get all the dependencies
 printed as a list. This works pretty fine on most systems, like on our
 ubuntu's and what not.
 On OpemBSD it prints an error message that the lib cant be loaded. But if
 you do LD_PRELOAD_LIBS=/path/to/libz.**so ldd /path/to/libpng.so it will
 work. So we have to preload the lib in order libpng will use it.
 Doing this needs to happen on a very early level. Doing it from within a
 running perl is to late, even if we load libpng using DynaLoader.
 The only thing I can think about atm is that we run a perl, load that
 libz.so, and start a child perl process that does the stuff we do now.

 This problem applies to libpng (needs libz), libtiff (needs libjpeg) and
 libvorbis (needs libogg).
 Before YAPC::EU I was working hard on that thing, I guess I can supply a
 patch in a few days.

 Another problem that exists right now is that the old G4-Macs dont have a
 header file we want to use, I will debug that at some point. I dont think
 that there are so many users with a G4. These fails only come from BinGOs
 so far.

 And there are still SDL::Controller(::Interface) fails. But since I dont
 really understand whats happening there it would be cool if the author (you
 kathekore ;o) would have a look at it.

 So far from me, I will write a msg about the YAPC later.

 You can't do that. When Alien::SDL containing a

 resulting /usr/bin/sdl-config conflicts with the
 already existing /usr/bin/sdl-config from libSDL-devel.rpm.

 You can disregard that advice, be prepared for packagers renaming the
 file (each distro differently) and a bug report each.



sdl-config file for Alien::SDL

2012-07-08 Thread Kartik Thakore
Hey guys,

I am proposing Alien::SDL makes sdl-config available as a script file. It
would just print out config('libs') and etc. This way it makes it the same
as using `sdl-config ...` in other XS projects. It is a pain to always to
use Alien::SDL and so on.

 Hi FROGGS,

 I was on IRC and got a lot of help, thank you.

 The data is RAW BGR/RGB or RGBA data from the network i.e. VNC rectangle
 packets.

 The problem I had was it was not obvious how to put this raw data into a
 surface so that it could be blitted.

 The solution (thanks to Scott Walters) was to get the get_pixels_ptr and
 fill the area of the surface directly as follows:

$pixels_ptr=$surface-get_**pixels_ptr();
substr $$pixels_ptr, 0, length($data), $data;

 # $data=raw RGB data.

 I hope this information helps others.

Fwd: [SDLx-Widget] SYNOPSIS-code doesn't work: missing font (#2)

Hi!

The code in SYNOPSIS does not work as it is, it dies with an error:
Attribute (font) is required at menu.pl line 14

Here is some demo code:

perl```
   #!perl

   use strict;
   use warnings;
   use SDL;
   use SDLx::App;
   use SDLx::Widget::Menu;

   my $app = SDLx::App-new(
   title = 'Menu demo',
   exit_on_quit = 1,
   );

   my $menu = SDLx::Widget::Menu-new-items(
   'New Game' = \play,
   'Options'  = \settings,
   'Quit' = \quit,
   );

   $app-run();

   exit(0);

Maybe you can add default font support as it is done in SDLx::Font?


hth,
Alex

 Hi Kartik,

 I recently started working with the SDL Manual, but I don't have a game in 
 mind. Regardless of that, I find it very useful to see the things you can do 
 with SDL demonstrated with games. What I'm missing so far, and what is part 
 of every game, too, is UI stuff. How do buttons work with SDL, how do you 
 change the state of a button element (normal, active, hover, diabled,  etc.) 
 and how do you encapsulate such UI elements properly.


Perhaps getting Agar working again in perl will help? Http://libagar.org/

 Basically, I'm still experimenting to find a way to create a good button 
 class for a menu. I know there is a package out there that provides methods 
 for drawing menus, but especially when writing your own games / apps, I guess 
 one might want to implement its own kind of menu with nifty nice effects, 
 layout and so on.


Hmm we would love it if you can provide feedback/issues on the
SDLx::Widgets github site.

 So this is my idea: add a chapter on UI elements (not only buttons, but 
 (high-score-tables, text fields etc.). Unfortunately, all I can add to this 
 project so far (I'm still a SDL n00b) are possibly dumb questions. For 
 example, I don't know how to adjust a text on a surface for a button. By 
 adjusting, I mean something like aligning to the left or the right or 
 automatically splitting the text up an breaking into a new line when a given 
 with would be exceeded (I'm generating buttons with unknown text length, 
 which is quite problematic).

Seems like a good idea. Thanks.

 Betreff: Revamping SDL_Manual

 Hello guys,

 So as I have gotten busy over the last couple months with my startup and
 masters the  SDL Manual has fell behind, and I would like to ask if anyone
 is interested in taking on writing new chapters or reorganizing SDL
 Manual.
 We can discuss any new chapters to add and work with reorganize it. An
 idea
 I have is to change the name to Perl Game Development and incorporate more
 then just SDL chapters into the manual. Any suggestions are welcome!

 I've got an Ubuntu 11.10 with standard Perl installed,
 sudo cpan

 But the SDL install shows that I'm lacking a lot of librairies, but I
 don't know how to install them, commands like sudo cpan pangoft2 or sudo

 Is there an easy to find the exact names of these librairies ? And are
 supposed to be installed with CPAN too, or from another depot ?

Re: SDLx::Text - replace old text?

 This is actually the correct behavior. You need to redraw the

 I just realized this was discussed on Github, so you can probably

 Regarding the surface, SDLx::App is a SDLx::Surface.  That's what I
 was referring to.  I don't think it's safe to make any assumptions
 about what's behind the text, so it should be the module user's
 responsibility to clear whatever is behind it.

Hmm can we just not make the blit for clearing the text surface? Cause it
wraps an sdl::surface.

 So, it's basically 4 picture slides in a row. For testing purposes, I assume

 I need to load each one of the 4 images and blit them to the surface.

$image,
[0, 0, 160, 400],

$app-blit();

 $app-run();

 # -- Cleanup.
 exit(0);
 [/code]

 And, is it possible to extract a picture section from the image loaded? In
 case the app is loaded with 4:3 aspect ratio, I would like to snip a bit of
 the images at the left and the right, so that the pictures fit in without
 the need of black bars at the top and the bottom of the screen.

Yup this is possible. Make a smaller SDLx::Surface of the final
snipped image, blit_by the original image with the right offset.

 Dear all!

 Hi there!

 I just tried the example code of the SDL Manual where you play some
 music.
 By the SDL manual, I refer to the one that is hidden at the bottom of
 the sdl.perl.org page, so that you really have to search for it in
 order to find it - and even then you have to get along with an ugly
 github
 interface.
 There's a new project website under way, but we're missing people to
 work in it. Please join #sdl in irc.perl.org if you want to help us
 get it right :)

 So, in general: Is there a way to play mp3 files?
 Yup.

 If your libsdl was compiled with mp3 support, all you have to do
 (iirc) is set the MIX_INIT_MP3 (for effects) and MUS_MP3 (for audio)
 flags when you call SDL::Mixer::init():

  SDL::Mixer::init( MIX_INIT_MP3 | MUS_MP3 );

 then use load_MUS() and play_music() from SDL::Mixer::Music to play
 mp3 files as background music, or load_WAV() from SDL::Mixer::Samples
 to play mp3 effects (yes, the function is named load_WAV() but plays
 different formats too if they're available).

 The documentation in SDL::Mixer, SDL::Mixer::Music and
 SDL::Mixer::Samples should be helpful, as some of the test files
 (t/mixer_music.t comes to mind).

 And in particular: is there a way to play mp3 files that are in a
 variable?
 Or do I have to work with temporary files?

 Not sure. I *think* 

Re: SDL packaging team revival

Is there interest from the games team to push and work on SDL packages? Or
would it get lost in a larger sea of packages to maintain.
Additionally, I feel SDL is not necessarily only games related.

Getting SDL on Debian [Update]

2011-11-04 Thread Kartik Thakore
Hello Guys,

Currently dod/dodathome ( in #sdl) has shown interest in getting SDL
2.534 onto Debian, however we are currently blocked by an issue in
PangZero a game that depends on SDLperl on Debian.

We have been working on updating the pangzero code to use the new SDL here:

https://github.com/kthakore/pangzero

We have one last bug to fix and it is basically a blitting problem for
the bottom of the screen. It is fairly obvious if you run the current
pangzero with the debian version.


Any help would be great! In the meantime we are getting closer to
getting SDL on Debian. Which has been a great milestone for the SDL
Perl project for over a year now.

Regards!

Hi Dominique,

As I have mentioned before we have already ported frozen-bubble over to
use the new SDL perl bindings. You will find the necessary repositories

Thank you for your interest.

Hi Chris, 

I am interested in helping out! Any bugs I can tackle I will take. I am
also hoping to look at using some of the P5NCI optimizations chromatic
was talking about but I will wait for a while and learn the code base so
far. 

P.S. It would be appreciated if you CC'd the sdl-devel@perl.org list. We
have several ppl on that list that are interested in this project

 Announcing the new Perl OpenGL project site at
 sourceforge.net.  A read-only git access is at

 I plan on updating the plan going forward but
 the immediate goals are:
 
 (1) Continue work with Dmitry Karasik to resolve
  win32 and cygwin build issues for his new
  Prima::OpenGL module at
 
http://github.com/dk/Prima-OpenGL
 
 (2) Refactor the perl API bindings to OpenGL
  to use GLEW rather than rolling our own.
  That should allow for an immediate bump
  in OpenGL support to version 4.x.
 
 (3) Refactor the GUI/system inteface in OpenGL
  to be more platform *and* GUI toolkit
  portable.  The current FreeGLUT default is
  very portable but abstracting the needed
  interface should allow it to be provided
  by *any* GUI library.  This is already getting
  started (surprisingly quickly) in #1.
 
 (4) Replace platform OpenGL library detection
  in the Makefile.PL by an Alien::OpenGL or
  such approach.  Maybe Alien::GLEW would be
  better here.
 
 (5) Move from EU::MM to Module::Build to reduce
  platform specific shell and make issues.
 
 If you are interested in participating, please
 contact me via email or through the sf.net
 project page links at

  Hi!  I was talking about tcc, the
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiny_C_Compiler .   It's x86-specific but
  otherwise it seems like a convenient and really fast way to create
  structures defined by C.
  Are you suggesting an approach like Python's Weave or Cinpy?
 
   http://scipy.org/Weave
  http://www.cs.tut.fi/~ask/cinpy/
 
 Yes, quite.
 
  The approach I had in mind was to build an XS file full of Perl - C 
  thunks 
  and then use the closure-over-dlfunc-pointer trick of P5NCI to avoid 
  writing 
  (and paying the cost of) hundreds of otherwise-identical XS wrappers.
 
 Ah, well, I had perhaps an incomplete understanding of the problem.  I
 thought we needed to create complex data structures for some newer
 OpenGL calls, so I wanted to ease the difficulty of making complex C
 data structures from Perl.  If, OTOH, the primary problem is exposing a
 very broad API from C to Perl, then yes, reusing XS wrappers is very
 good (reduced memory use, better cache coherency, blah blah).
 
 
   This is 
  even one spot where a little AUTOLOAD magic would help memory usage even 
  more.

2010-12-10 Thread Kartik Thakore
Hi Froggs,

You patch passed for me on debian. Go ahead and release the SDL
development release SDL 2.525_1. Also after you release can you give me
permissions on Module::Build::SDL as it is the new module I just added
recently. 

Peace,

[Fwd: Re: How badly does my SDLx::App code suck?]

SDLx::* is still in the stages of being too slow to use. We have not
optimized the SDLx::Validate in it. 

You can mix with SDL::* to improve your performance, if you are
confident of the validation.

Another things you can do is keep track of what 'LED' changes, and only
update that rect. 

SDL::Video::update_rects( ( SDL::Rect-new(x,y,w,h),  );

I have attached an updated script.

 So, my intent here was to simulate the behavior of a planned array of
 LED light circuits.  Simply, the idea was that each one would
 occasionally randomly decide to change its color to a random RGB
 value.  This would then propogate a 'front' of sorts that could
 potentially interact with other fronts in strange and interesting
 ways.  This basically works.  The problem is that it seems kind of
 slow.  This is a result, no doubt of my only burgeoning understanding
 of SDL and the Perl bindings.  As you can probably see, it's based off
 of the game of life example in that it uses draw_rect to make a grid
 of objects across an SDLx::App surface.  Basically it iterates over a
 2D array of datastructures representing each element and renders it.
 
 Is there a better/faster way to be rendering this?  Should I be
 blitting? What aspects could be slowing it down significantly?  A
 cursory examination with NYTProf revealed that, unsurprisingly, a lot
 of time is being spent in draw_rect, though, interestingly, the
 highest amount of time is in its call to
 SDLx::Validate::_color_arrayref.  Does this mean using an approach
 like this:
 
 unpack ('I', pack ('C*', int rand...
 
 to color randomization and comparison would be better, or would
 validation still take up a sizable amount of time?
 
 I'm still learning and trying to piece together the right way to do
 things from disparate examples, but it's a little difficult, so I
 thought I'd ask here.  Please feel free to comment / criticize at
 length.

Re: SDL surface blit flip

 Hello,

Hello Rouven,

 some time ago i contacted you for some perl sdl talk. atm i got some
 time to get into sdl, i'm getting forward tho.

Cool. Have a look at the SDL_Manual we are working on.
http://sdlperl.ath.cx/releases/SDL_Manual.pdf

We have several additions to SDLx::* now that make using SDL easier.

 now i got some question. how do i most effectively blit stuff on screen?
 
 blitting a 320x240 px part out of a 1024x768 px image to the dest
 surface with 40 fps tooks like 40% cpu on an atom 1,6ghz. isnt that too
 much?

If you have an SDLx::App or SDLx::Surface you can do
SDLx::Surface-blit(SDLx::Surface, [x,y,w,h]);

 
 first i create the screen surface with SDL::Video::set_video_mode, then
 i load the image with SDL::Image::load and put 320x240 px of it to
 screen surface with blit_surface. then i update screen with
 SDL::Video::flip. how to make it more cpu effective?
 
SDLx::App-new( w= 320, h= 240) # will make the screen.
my $image = SDLx::Surface-new( image = Image.bmp ); #will do the
image
then $image-blit( $app );

Also using flags = SDL_HWSURFACE | SDL_DOUBLEBUF  in
SDLx::App-new( ...) will make flip() faster then update(). Also
surfaces that have a size of 2^n are best for blitting. Finally using 
8bpp PNG index for images are the fastest.


 i'm working on a package to create graphical menus, popups, etc in perl
 sdl using xml files to define them. may i help perl-sdl development by
 creating modules?

Absolutely! Have a look at Allegro too. It has GUI using SDL and it has
a perl module (although it might be old now).

 with friendly regards,
 rouven raudzus

Hi Chris,

I am trying to hunt down the following failures for SDL 2.516. Most of
them seem to happen in your *bsd farms. May I get access to one of them
to debug the code? If not can you force install and run

gdb --args perl t/sdlx_interface.t
gdb run

and also run this

gdb --args perl script.pl
gdb run

Where script.pl is attached to this email. 

Thank you very much
