This chapter explained how to get up and running with ClanLib. ClanLib at heart is an easy-to-use library for drawing 2D graphics. However, one of the most tedious chores with any graphics library is the series of steps required to get set up and ready to start drawing images. The purpose of this chapter is to bring readers to that stage.
Now that you're ready to actually present something on the screen, the next chapter illustrates how to start drawing still images and even animated images in the world of 2D.
