No offense, but are you going through any of the tutorials posted for you? It seems that everytime I come on here you're asking really basic questions and people often direct you to the same tutorials. Not trying to be rude, just make sure you don't get ahead of yourself and learn yourself some good basics first.

Dear god, they actually ported ES to a piece of celery!

Killer........no.......just no



Don't even bother thinking about SDL yet. I've read through your previous posts and you clearly need to start with the BASICS. Pick a programming language that you would like to learn, and start from the ground up. Learn about data types, input/output, flow control, structures, objects, etc... Then, once you are comfortable creating console applications that make good use of everything you have learned you can move on to game development. I'm not trying to be a dick, but questions like these will not get you anywhere on this forum.
