SDL_mixer Documentation

This is the documentation for SDL_mixer.

SDL_mixer is a sound mixing library that is used with the SDL library, and almost as portable. It allows a programmer to use multiple samples along with music without having to code a mixing algorithm themselves. It also simplyfies the handling of loading and playing samples and music from all sorts of file formats.

SDL_mixer is available at or more specifically The SDL_mixer homepage
