00:42 virtualsid Mithaldu: Sorry for the delay! I just wanted to write a small program to run on the Pi so that our bub could smash keys on the keyboard and it would show up on screen as well as do some sort of music/noises.
00:42 virtualsid I looked at some of the sample games on the Pi and pygame looks /really/ easy to use.
00:42 Mithaldu virtualsid: SDL would probably allow you to do that
00:42 Mithaldu but i have no pi experience i'm afraid
00:42 Mithaldu my games are for desktop :)
00:44 virtualsid I've never done graphical stuff. I looked at Tk, but that's not really the style I want.
00:44 Mithaldu try looking at the SDL 1.2 docs
00:44 Mithaldu see if that appeals to you
00:44 virtualsid Well "never" is perhaps a stretch. "Not recently". :)
00:44 Mithaldu SDL.pm just implements that
00:44 virtualsid pygame uses SDL too
00:45 virtualsid but you almost certainly knew that. :)
00:45 Mithaldu actually didn't!
00:45 Mithaldu i don't do python
00:45 Mithaldu i just use sdl + opengl
00:45 virtualsid Neither do I. Heh
00:46 virtualsid SDL is definitely the sort of framework needed. I wonder if anyone has written a wrapper for simpler SDL.pm coding...
00:47 Mithaldu there's SDLx::App
00:47 Mithaldu but it's not very mature
00:47 Mithaldu i use it for this: https://github.com/wchristian/Microidium
00:51 virtualsid looking... though my laptop has slow to a crawl. :)
00:51 Mithaldu due to github?
00:52 virtualsid no no - due to too many tabs, and other apps. :)
00:52 virtualsid watching the video - very slick!
00:52 virtualsid I think tomorrows task will be to put SDL.pm on the Pi.
00:52 virtualsid or Maybe wednesday's.
00:53 virtualsid today / tomorrow should probably be cramming for my first ever programming interview. I'm a network engineer normally. :)
00:53 Mithaldu it's a work in progress
00:54 Mithaldu and it'll probably work on weak systems if you cut down the post processing fragment shader
00:54 Mithaldu just be aware that my deps are eclectic
00:54 virtualsid Well, even your WIP looks very slick.
00:54 virtualsid I probably won't run that game as one of the first things. :)
00:54 Mithaldu :)
00:54 Mithaldu also
00:54 Mithaldu be aware that i am *not* using SDL graphics
00:55 Mithaldu i'm only using it to get an opengl target and then using that directly
00:55 virtualsid Ah, okay. What are you using? This area is all knew to me.
00:55 virtualsid I see.
00:55 virtualsid What's your local system - a linux one?
00:55 virtualsid I ask because I wonder how it might work ona mac.
00:58 virtualsid anyway, time for breakfast.
00:58 Mithaldu haha, breakfast
00:58 Mithaldu it's 3 am here :)
00:59 Mithaldu i'm on a windows machine
00:59 Mithaldu i really do not know at all how and if it works on any of the *nixy machines
01:01 Mithaldu virtualsid: if you look at my readme you'll also find links to tutorials
01:48 virtualsid i find it interesting how people to Perl onWindows. I used to think it was very very heavily unix only users.

20:28 Mithaldu until some english-challenged person stumbles into #win32 and asks us to explain to them how to use perl
