+Allegro for Debian
+- liballegro<version> - Shared library
+- liballegro-dev - Static library, utilities
+- allegro-examples - small demos and example programs
+- allegro-demo - a demo game using the shared library (req. allegro-demo-data)
+- allegro-doc - documentation, example source files
+For game developers, I suggest to install data files into
+/usr/share/games/<game-or-package-name>. If you have an executable file, which
+depends on being executed from the starting directory, you may place this
+binary in the /usr/games/ directory, using a name like "game.real", symlink it
+to the dat directory and create an small wrapper in /usr/games. Or put the
+files in /usr/games, /usr/lib/gamex/*/ and /usr/share/games/*/, corresponding
+to their function and platform dependency. See FHS and allegro-demo for
+Allegro should have rational settings by default. To enable DIGMID (software
+midi), please install timidity-patches package. To modify Allegro's behaviour,
+you can take the example config file from /usr/share/doc/liballegro4/examples,
+modify and save as /etc/allegro.cfg or ~/.allegrorc .
+The Allegro library is a comfortable game development kit, used by over
+200 games (in the DOS-version). It is written in C with assembler
+optimisations and can be used in C or C++, but also in other languages
+via extensions. Allegro has many features, supports several input
+sources and output targets.
+- DOS
+- Win32
+- BeOS
+...without reinventing the wheel.
+2D graphics:
+- X window graphics
+- DGA2 (Accelerated modes under XFree86-4.0.x)
+- DGA (Accelerated modes under XFree86-3.3.6)
+- Framebuffer (experimental)
+- SVGALIB (experimental)
+- good driver API, more drivers possible
+- high-level drawing routines, simplifying programming
+3D graphics:
+- integrated software 3D routines
+- OpenGL (via extension, in development)
+- usuall OSS
+- EsounD
+- misc. playing routines
+- MIDI software synthesizer, similar to Timidity
+- misc. extensions available, MOD, MP3 player
+- Keyboard, on Console and X11, internationalisation
+- Mouse (native drivers, GPM, X11)
+- Joystick interface
+Support functions:
+- image loader (misc. formats, extendable)
+- sound loader (wave, midi, extendable)
+- advanced handling of data files (compression, virtual filesystem, data
+ files embedded into executable)
+- environment detection, configuration storing/loading routines, timers,
+ image manipulation
+Got interessted? Install allegro-demo and see Allegro in action. Wanna
+develop with it? Check documentation and examples in allegro*-dev,
+allegro*-doc and allegro-examples packages.

+.TH ALLEGRO 1 "8 June 2003" Version 4.0.3
+allegro-config - script to get information about the installed version of Allegro
+.B allegro-config
+[\-\-prefix\fI[=DIR]\fP] [\-\-exec\-prefix\fI[=DIR]\fP] [\-\-version] [\-\-libs] [\-\-cflags] [\-\-static] [\-\-shared] [\-\-env] [release|debug|profile]
+\fIallegro-config\fP is a tool that is used to configure to determine
+the compiler and linker flags that should be used to compile
+and link programs that use the \fIAllegro\fP library. It is intended to
+be used on Unix systems instead of the simple "-lalleg" call.
+\fIgcc -o mygame mygame.o `allegro-config --libs`\fP
+\fIallegro-config\fP will insert arguments needed to link into the
+command line.
+\fIallegro-config\fP accepts the following options:
+.TP 8
+.B \-\-version
+Print the currently installed version of \fIAllegro\fP on the standard output.
+.TP 8
+.B \-\-libs
+Print the linker flags that are necessary to link an \fIAllegro\fP program.
+.TP 8
+.B \-\-cflags
+Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile an \fIAllegro\fP program.
+.TP 8
+.B \-\-prefix=PREFIX
+If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation prefix that \fIAllegro\fP
+was built with when computing the output for the \-\-cflags and
+\-\-libs options. This option is also used for the exec prefix
+if \-\-exec\-prefix was not specified. This option must be specified
+before any \-\-libs or \-\-cflags options.
+.TP 8
+.B \-\-exec\-prefix=PREFIX
+If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation exec prefix that
+\fIAllegro\fP was built with when computing the output for the \-\-cflags
+and \-\-libs options. This option must be specified before any
+\-\-libs or \-\-cflags options.
+.TP 8
+.B \-\-static
+Like \-\-libs, but always print the linker flags needed to get a statically
+linked executable.
+.TP 8
+.B \-\-shared
+Like \-\-libs, but always print the linker flags needed to get an
+executable linked against shared libs.
+.TP 8
+.B \-\-env
+Print some needed environment variables in the way needed in shell
+scripts. Output may be loaded into your environment using
+BASH#>\ eval\ \`allegro\-config\ \-\-env`
+.B release
+This will use the optimized Allegro library which you should use when
+you are compiling for a release.
+.B debug
+This will add extra debug info into your programs, useful to find out
+where your program crashed or simply to debug it (names of functions
+are seen). You may choose this option while developing a program.
+.B profile
+This may be used when you want to profile your program - i.e. measure
+the speeds of various function calls.

+ * New upstream version
+ Make rest(0) call select() with non-zero timeout on Unix. The old

+ on programs which try to draw as fast as possible. (Peter Wang)
+ Fix module loading on Unix (Bernhard Rosenkraenzer).
+ Made memory bitmaps returned by create_system_bitmap not marked as system
+ bitmaps (Edgar Reynaldo).
+ Add detection of Windows 7 (Andrei Ellman).
+ Fail instead of crashing if gfx_directx_make_bitmap_from_surface() fails
+ (Andrei Ellman).
+ Fix crash in GDI driver if setting a second mode fails, after having
+ successfully set a mode previously (Andrei Ellman).
+ Add missing frameworks required for static linking on OS X (Peter Johansson).
+ Fixed a problem with keyboard focus being lost on OS X when switching from
+ windowed mode to fullscreen mode (Peter Johansson).
+ alsa_rawmidi_init could return success on failure (Nicolas Kaiser).
+ Updated PSP port from diedel. "The graphics, system, digi, keyboard, mouse,
+ joystick and timer drivers are implemented and are fully functional. It
+ supports 8, 15, 16 and 32 bpp color depths and a max. resolution of 480x272
+ pixels."
+ Eliminated the need for old DirectX headers for the Windows port
+ (David Capello).
+ Fix problems in Windows when you use Alt-Tab. Sometimes the Alt modifier is
+ kept pressed when you focus the Allegro window. (David Capello)
+ Make the submenu appear to the right of its parent menu if it does not fit
+ in the screen (Paul Suntsov).
+ Made timers on Unix cope with system time being set backwards
+ (Hardi Stengelin).
+ Fix various compilation and build problems (scottmc, Cristian Morales Vega,
+ Tony Ylisirniö, Edgar Reynaldo).
+ (Samuli Suominen).
+ Also pass -pg when building shared library in PROFILE mode.
+ Let demos find readme.txt and source files correctly even if running from a
+ build directory (Peter Wang).

+ Allegro is gift-ware. It was created by a number of people working in

+ not have to give us anything in return. However, if you like this product
+ you are encouraged to thank us by making a return gift to the Allegro
+ community. This could be by writing an add-on package, providing a useful
+ bug report, making an improvement to the library, or perhaps just
+ releasing the sources of your program so that other people can learn from
+ them. If you redistribute parts of this code or make a game using it, it
+ would be nice if you mentioned Allegro somewhere in the credits, but you
+ are not required to do this. We trust you not to abuse our generosity.
