Programming without the Mouse using Vim

I have achieved a major milestone. I can now work on my programming even when my mouse fails! Vim is a great text editor with syntax highlighting that also allows for running commands! In my case I use :!make to run the script that compiles and runs my code!

My “Infinity Checkerboard” project has come very far from what it was. I can do incredible things as I learn more of the SDL library. Although this game does not contain much, the source code is very small and only requires the base SDL library with no extensions and a working C compiler.

I hope that others benefit from this video both as an example of the power of SDL and the C programming language but also as an example of using Vim as a text editor.

  1. Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook
    or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based upon on the same topics you
    discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I
    know my viewers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send
