I would recommend testing this stuff on your desktop and get out of that restrained environment during the test development.


That's actually part of why I wrote GFX to be runnable anywhere. I didn't want to develop it on a constrained environment. But it has to run on them.

My initial GFX library dumped its output solely using printf() and drawing ascii art after converting bitmaps to 16 color grayscale.

I used that to test my line drawing algorithms and such.

But now that all of that is done and pretty predictable, I find myself going back to the PC to code this thing less and less, either because I'm dealing with things like asynchronous draws which have no support on the PC, or most of what I'm doing works the first time or two after it compiles because i've built the foundation up by now enough that the coding is fairly high level.
