I've been reading 'Learn C++ By making Games' and it uses the SDL library. The problem is the book has poor code examples, a lot of them don't even show the #include <libraries> instead jump straight to the main() function. So I just ordered the book 'Linux Graphics Programming with SVGAlib' believing it might be fun to work with only to discover that it's code is C, not C++ which is what I'm trying to learn. What's a good graphics library I could use with C++ on my Linux system, note that Windows compatibility is not important.
I know I probably need to be working on my php skills if I ever intend to have a job in IT but I just don't enjoy it, so I usually tinker with learning C++ towards simple game making on my Linux system.
