exupdate(3alleg4)                Allegro manual                exupdate(3alleg4)



NAME
       exupdate - Supporting different screen update methods in a single
       program. Allegro game programming library.

SYNOPSIS
       #include <allegro.h>


       Example exupdate

DESCRIPTION
       This program demonstrates how to support double buffering, page flipping,
       and triple buffering as options within a single program, and how to make
       things run at a constant rate no matter what the speed of your computer.
       You have to use this example from the command line to specify as first
       parameter a number which represents the type of video update you want: 1
       for double buffering with memory bitmaps, 2 for page flipping, 3 for
       triple buffering and 4 for double buffering with system bitmaps. After
       this, a dialog allows you to select a screen resolution and finally you
       will see a kaleidoscopic animation, along with a frames per second
       counter on the top left of the screen.
