SDL_SetMainReady

Use this function to circumvent failure of SDL_Init() when not using SDL_main() as an entry point.

Syntax

void SDL_SetMainReady(void)

Code Examples

#define SDL_MAIN_HANDLED
#include "SDL.h"

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
    SDL_SetMainReady();
    SDL_Init(SDL_INIT_VIDEO);

    ...

    SDL_Quit();

    return 0;
}

Remarks

This function is defined in SDL_main.h, along with the preprocessor rule to redefine main() as SDL_main(). Thus to ensure that your main() function will not be changed it is necessary to define SDL_MAIN_HANDLED before including SDL.h.
