Mark Collins, Linux video game Programming (Prima, 2001)
The major challenge with interpreting computing device books which are six years outdated is that, good, they're six years previous. this isn't an enormous 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 provider contracts mandate. That, notwithstanding, is nearly by no means the case with Linux, the place an immense pool of builders pretty well guarantees that issues will develop and alter on a per month, if now not day-by-day, foundation. nonetheless, the fundamentals of the mandatory wisdom to get less than the hood and tinker with Linux will carry real, so it is not like there is completely not anything to achieve from a ebook like this if 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 reality, that newb. Having ultimately thrown Microsoft over for stable in each point of my existence 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 initiatives i used to be engaged on must be Linux initiatives now. So i began with what i'll get on the library, Collins' six-year-old treatise on Linux video game programming. First, permit me say that if you are trying to find hands-on educational stuff, this isn't the ebook for you. Collins is extra attracted to getting you to appreciate the concepts--why you need to do whatever, instead of what it really is you need to do. whereas this is often evidently a great factor and results in programmers who comprehend extra of what they're on approximately, it is most likely worthy a caveat emptor for the folk who're simply searching for shortcuts, or solutions to a particular challenge. the second one factor to be acknowledged, then, is that online game layout itself is the main transportable a part of any online game venture. whereas Collins does delve into a few issues which are extra acceptable to Linux improvement than the other type (an whole bankruptcy, for instance, is dedicated to the OpenSource debate), some of the particular instruments Collins talks approximately, and all the high-level thoughts, are appropriate to online game designers who software for any platform. therefore, i'll move methods the following; criticize the e-book for probably not being approximately Linux in particular, or compliment it for being universal?
The challenge is, i will not do one or the opposite. How precious you will discover it is going to most probably depend upon how a lot examining you've gotten already performed on designing video games and constructing video games with C++. If you could have performed a great deal, you'll get the main worthy out of the chapters on SDL and openGL/openAL; in a different way, learn the whole lot. ***

Checking Out Files CVS stores projects and files in a central repository, but you work from a working copy, the sandbox, in your local directories. You create the sandbox with cvs checkout. CVS creates the sandbox as a subdirectory of your current working directory. I like to create a directory to contain all my CVS sandboxes, and I use ~/cvs. Run this command from whichever directory you want a sandbox created in: cvs -d repository_path checkout project_name It checks out all files for the named project.
If a line in the repository copy is different from the corresponding line in the sandbox copy, CVS reports a conflict and creates a file with the two revisions of the line surrounded by special marks, as shown in Example 2-18. 50 Part I: Introduction Part I: Introduction 51 Example 2-18. Conflict marks <<<<<< The general format for repository path is: [:method[;option=arg]:][[[user][:password]@]hostname[:[port]]]/path Each access method (method in the syntax) has a slightly different syntax. Chapter 8 provides the correct syntax for each method. These are the access methods: local Connect to the local machine. ext Connect using an externally defined rsh or rsh-like connection method (such as ssh). server Connect using the internal rsh server (available only on some operating systems). pserver Connect using the pserver (password server) connection method.
