    A little help?

    Hi, I am a novice programmer wishing to learn more about the trade. I recently heard the best application to make graphics from scratch is DirectDraw. Can anyone tell me how to actually access DirectDraw. Do I need to download it or is it already in my computer. And if it is in my computer where do i acess it?

    Thanks you to anyone who may enlighten me on this.

    I'd also check out SDL. It's a bit simpler IMHO, and DirectDraw is quite outdated (it "died" with DirectX 7).

    Some tutorials and resources.
