2.2 Compiling

To link with SDL_ttf you should use sdl-config to get the required SDL compilation options. After that, compiling with SDL_ttf is quite easy.
Note: Some systems may not have the SDL_ttf library and include file in the same place as the SDL library and includes are located, in that case you will need to add more -I and -L paths to these command lines. All examples are gcc and perhaps UNIX specific, but adaptable to many compilers and Operating Systems.

Simple Example for compiling to an object file:

gcc -c `sdl-config --cflags` mysource.c

Simple Example for linking an executable (Unix style has no .exe):

gcc -o myprogram mysource.o `sdl-config --libs` -lSDL_ttf

Now myprogram is ready to run.
