/**

* Official documentation for SDL configuration variables
*
* This file contains functions to set and get configuration hints,
* as well as listing each of them alphabetically.
*
* The convention for naming hints is SDL_HINT_X, where "SDL_X" is
* the environment variable that can be used to override the default.
*
* In general these hints are just that - they may or may not be
* supported or applicable on any given platform, but they provide
* a way for an application or user to give the library a hint as
* to how they would like the library to work.
