Linux Game Programming w/CD (Prima Tech's Game Development)

Mark Collins, Linux video game Programming (Prima, 2001)

The major challenge with examining laptop books which are six years previous is that, good, they are six years previous. this isn't an incredible challenge within the home windows global; as we've seen, occasionally the most up-tp-date home windows know-how will remain round much longer than the carrier contracts mandate. That, notwithstanding, is nearly by no means the case with Linux, the place a major pool of builders pretty well guarantees that issues will develop and alter on a per month, if no longer day-by-day, foundation. nonetheless, the fundamentals of the mandatory 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 publication like this in case you are a complete newb. (Sorry, I despise that spelling, but when i exploit the right kind one, Amazon filters it for being one letter off from a undeniable slang time period they do not appear to like. )

I am, in truth, that newb. Having eventually thrown Microsoft over for sturdy in each point of my lifestyles i will (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 online game initiatives i used to be engaged on should be Linux tasks now. So i began with what i may get on the library, Collins' six-year-old treatise on Linux online game programming. First, enable me say that in case you are searching for hands-on educational stuff, this isn't the booklet for you. Collins is extra attracted to getting you to appreciate the concepts--why you need to do anything, instead of what it truly is you must do. whereas this can be evidently a great factor and ends up in programmers who comprehend extra of what they are on approximately, it truly is most likely worthy a caveat emptor for the folks who're simply trying to find shortcuts, or solutions to a particular challenge. the second one factor to be acknowledged, then, is that video game layout itself is the main transportable a part of any online game undertaking. whereas Collins does delve into a few issues which are extra acceptable to Linux improvement than the other variety (an complete bankruptcy, for instance, is dedicated to the OpenSource debate), some of the particular instruments Collins talks approximately, and the entire high-level ideas, are acceptable to online game designers who application for any platform. hence, i'll pass methods the following; criticize the publication 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 find it is going to most likely depend upon how a lot interpreting you could have already performed on designing video games and constructing video games with C++. If you've gotten performed a whole lot, you'll get the main worthy out of the chapters on SDL and openGL/openAL; another way, learn the whole lot. ***

Example text

During the search, if print or any word that contains print (such as printing) is found, this command is displayed on your screen. Therefore, the final result is a list of all commands having to do with print. Then you can use the man command to find out the details about any or all of the commands on this list. On some systems, another way to do this search is via the command apropos, which is equivalent to man -k. Although having the complete set of manual entries online is extremely useful, it also takes a fairly large amount of disk space.

TIP: You can work around ls's default sorting order by prefixing filenames with punctuation (but not hyphens or plus signs), digits, or capitalization. htm $ mv borscht strudel $ ls strudel This command replaces the original file strudel with the contents of bortsch, and strudel's original contents are lost forever. If you use mv's -i option, the mv command, like cp, asks you before overwriting files. Also like cp, mv requires that you specify dot or dot-dot as the destination directory. In fact, this requirement is true of all UNIX commands that expect a directory argument.

Some of the operations that work with files also work with directories. However, some operations are not possible, and others must be done differently for directories.
