Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL) is a cross-platform, free and open source software multimedia library written in C that presents a simple interface to various platforms' graphics, sound, and input devices. It is used by developers to write computer games or other multimedia applications that can run on many operating systems including Linux, the PSP, Syllable, Haiku/BeOS, OpenVMS, Windows, Mac OS X, AmigaOS 4 and its clone MorphOS. It manages video, events, digital audio, CD-ROM, sound, threads, shared object loading, networking and timers.
