Mark Collins, Linux online game Programming (Prima, 2001)
The major challenge with analyzing laptop books which are six years outdated is that, good, they are six years previous. this isn't a big challenge within the home windows global; as we've seen, occasionally the most up-tp-date home windows expertise will remain round much longer than the carrier contracts mandate. That, although, is sort of by no means the case with Linux, the place an important pool of builders pretty well guarantees that issues will develop and alter on a per thirty days, if now not day-by-day, foundation. nonetheless, the fundamentals of the required wisdom to get below the hood and tinker with Linux will carry actual, so it is not like there is totally not anything to realize from a ebook like this if you are a complete newb. (Sorry, I despise that spelling, but when i take advantage of the right kind one, Amazon filters it for being one letter off from a definite slang time period they do not appear to like. )
I am, in truth, that newb. Having ultimately thrown Microsoft over for solid in each point of my lifestyles i will be able to (I nonetheless retain a home windows field round for video games, and i've to take advantage of it at work), all these database and video game tasks i used to be engaged on should be Linux initiatives now. So i began with what i'll get on the library, Collins' six-year-old treatise on Linux online game programming. First, allow me say that if you are searching for hands-on educational stuff, this isn't the e-book for you. Collins is extra drawn to getting you to appreciate the concepts--why you must do whatever, instead of what it really is you must do. whereas this can be evidently a superb factor and results in programmers who comprehend extra of what they are on approximately, it really is most likely worthy a caveat emptor for the folk who're simply searching for shortcuts, or solutions to a selected challenge. the second one factor to be acknowledged, then, is that video game layout itself is the main moveable a part of any online game undertaking. whereas Collins does delve into a few issues which are extra appropriate to Linux improvement than the other kind (an whole bankruptcy, for instance, is dedicated to the OpenSource debate), the various particular instruments Collins talks approximately, and the entire high-level recommendations, are acceptable to video game designers who software for any platform. hence, i'll move methods right here; criticize the e-book for not likely being approximately Linux in particular, or compliment it for being universal?
The challenge is, i cannot do one or the opposite. How necessary you will discover it is going to most probably rely on how a lot analyzing you may have already performed on designing video games and constructing video games with C++. If you've gotten performed much, you'll get the main worthy out of the chapters on SDL and openGL/openAL; differently, learn the whole lot. ***

2 exists before you give the cp command. The user answers y to overwrite the file. 2? copy. The period is part of the filenamejust another character. The initial ls command shows that memo is the only file in the directory. copy, in the directory. Sometimes it is useful to incorporate the date into the name of a copy of a file. 0130 Although it has no significance to the system, the date can help you find a version of a file that you created on a certain date. The date can also help you avoid overwriting existing files by providing a unique filename each day.

Refer to page 803 for more information on open. less: Displays a Text File One Screen at a Time When you want to view a file that is longer than one screen, you can use the less utility. This utility pauses after displaying a screen of text. Because it shows one page at a time, it is called a pager. While you are using less, you can press h to display a Help screen that lists commands you can use while paging through a file. Give the command less practice in place of the cat command in Figure 3-1 to see how this command works.
Sometimes there is no GUI counterpart for a text-based utility, and some people just prefer the hands-on feeling of the command line. When you work with a command line interface, you are working with the shell (Chapters 5, 8, and 13). Before you start working with the shell, it is important to understand something about the characters that are special to the shell, so this chapter starts with a discussion of special characters. The chapter then describes six basic utilities: ls, cat, rm, open, less, and hostname.
