I didn't say it was a beginners' library, but it IS a graphics library, and a good portable one at that. You might want to see frozen-bubble for a good and complete 2D graphics game implemented entirely in a few hundred lines of Perl, using SDL with Perl bindings.

    I've seen frozen bubble's source. It should also be noted that there is a lot of frame-buffer and abstraction code that had to be written to make SDL even barely usable. Frozen bubble is a great game, but the modularity and design of the source leaves a lot to be desired. It's probably a source for reverse engineering SDL, but it's not an example of quality coding -- though the result is indeed very very nice.
