It can use curses, if the SDL graphic library is not present, and is quite good at that, but the colors used in graphic mode (16 bit depth) are unfortunately less than dazzling. We could not test this entry in DOS mode. Selected Author's Comments: To run under DOS: Compile using DJGPP as follows: gcc thadgavin.c -o thadgavin.exe -Wall -lm -O6 -mpentium -fomit-frame-pointer -ffast-math To run under Windows, X-Windows or MacOS using the Simple DirectMedia Layer: For example: gcc -O6 -lpthread -g -o thadgavin thadgavin.c -lSDL -DSDL -lm In gcc you may get the following warning: prog.c:46: warning: passing arg 2 of `SDL_SetColors' from incompatible pointer type In Microsoft Visual Studio you may get warnings as follows: prog.c(46) : warning C4133: 'function' : incompatible types - from 'unsigned char *' to 'struct SDL_Color *' prog.c(63) : warning C4026: function declared with formal parameter list prog.c(77) : warning C4244: '=' : conversion from 'double ' to 'unsigned char ', possible loss of data But don't worry, this is completely normal.
