If you have no idea about your ini file position you can run
php -i | grep iniand see the list of you ini files.
The SDL extension mimics in almost every single aspect to the official C library, so until we write our own documentation, refer to the C counterpart.
Standard SDL2 API is available in procedural style:
$window = SDL_CreateWindow( "Foo window", 500, 50, 350, 300, SDL_WINDOW_SHOWN+SDL_WINDOW_RESIZABLE); SDL_SetWindowTitle($window, "Some new title"); SDL_DestroyWindow($window);
Complete examples can be found in the examples folder.
