From *nix to Android with SDL2 and SDL_image. Using the Command Line of Course!

Let me paint a picture;

My development environment on linux consists of a text editor with code highlighting (GEdit in my case), GCC/G++, and make. Development goes like this for me: Tickatickatype, Ctrl-S, “make ; ./test” . Using a basic handwritten Makefile isn’t that hard for testing a small project. I make it automate things like adding flags and defines from the command line. In the case of Android, I have it copy my source into the android project, compile it, pack it in an apk, and then copy the apk to dropbox so I can test it on my device.

If you use cygwin on windows with GCC/G++ you can more or less follow along as long as you promise to use your best judgment.

I’ve got three links that I used to figure out how to hack a function android project together with the latest SDL2 source.

An Integer Only Software Synthesizer Takes its First Steps

Right, so after being dead for a few months, someone used phoenix down on me and so I made a cute little software synthesizer in plain C. The runtime uses only integers, so I’m hoping to port it to a microcontroller like the AVR in my Arduino. So far it’s done a monophonic rendition of the intro of the Super Mario Bros. overworld theme. It used a variable pulse width square wave with amplitude modulation. I just had to hard code the notes in C, which was laborious.

Jorhlok Profile February 2012: First Post on this Blog

Right. Here I am! I am Jorh of the Nation of Jorh, otherwise known as the incomparable Joshua Michael Brown. This blog will contain basically anything I want to make public. It might be downloadable content, physical projects, information, or just plain opinion.

I do many things, depending on who you compare me to. Wait, wait, wait… bad grammar. I do many things, depending on whom I am compared. I use Free and Open Source Software, bend consumer electronics to my will, program computers, dabble in electronics and robotics, play videogames, listen to music, try to compose music, experiment with food, drink water, lucid dream, sleep, go to community college, be 19 years old, cashier at Walmart, and live in the USA.
