Hello again all!!! I just have two quick questions...
1.) Is it possible for one to run a program through the "system(command)" and have the output come out on top of an SDL program? Like if I had a background of some sort and typed "system(echo "Hello!")" could I have that output appear ON TOP of the background and not in the terminal itself?
2.) I know it's possible because I've seen it done...but how do you load a text file and display it on top of an SDL window? Like if I had this background(of some sort LOL) and the dialogue was saved in "speech.txt", how would I load that into my program and then display? Is it also possible to change the color, size and font? I know how to actually write on the screen with SDL_ttf, but not from a file.
I'm am doing all of this in Linux by the way and the program runs in fullscreen(hence why no terminal).
