    Post SDL newbie

    Hi folks, this is my first message; and i was wondering, if U could please help me, with some SDL programming stuff.
    Since I don't know how to program in C++; but plain C, i have encountered some difficulty in translating the SDL functions used to display text on screen with SDL (translate them from C++ to plain C); functions which I found in the tutorial GFX with SDL Lesson 4: Bitmap Fonts by Marius Andra; which came with my dev-cpp compiler. I would very much appreciate if somebody could tell me how to translate those functions to plain C (so that i can include them in my code); or where could I find similar functions to display text in SDL written in plain C.
    Thanks for your help...

    I found what i was looking for; a library that makes SDL text programing a lot easier...
    the Library is called SFont; and can be found after serching for fonts in http://www.libsdl.com as well as two other libraries (Bfont and Dfont). I've tried Sfont and really works great.
    greets.
