Pygame Readme
   Version 1.9.1release Python Game Development
   Originally by Pete Shinners, now an open source community project.


     Pygame is a cross-platfrom library designed to make it easy to
     write multimedia software, such as games, in Python. Pygame
     requires the Python language and SDL multimedia library. It can
     also make use of several other popular libraries.


     You should definitely begin by installing a binary package for your
     system. The binary packages usually come with or give the
     information needed for dependencies. Choose an appropriate
     installer for your system and version of python from the pygame
     downloads page. http://www.pygame.org/download.shtml

     Installing from source is fairly automated. The most work will
     involve compiling and installing all the pygame dependencies. Once
     that is done run the "setup.py" script which will attempt to
     auto-configure, build, and install pygame.

     Much more information about installing and compiling is available
     in the install.html file.


     If you are just getting started with pygame, you should be able to
     get started fairly quickly. Pygame comes with many tutorials and
     introductions. There is also full reference documentation for the
     entire library. Browse the documentation from the documenantation
     index. docs/index.html.

     On the pygame website, there is also an online copy of this
     documentation. You should know that the online documentation stays
     up to date with the development version of pygame in svn. This may
     be a bit newer than the version of pygame you are using.

     Best of all the examples directory has many playable small programs
     which can get started playing with the code right away.

   There's many more folks out there who've submitted helpful ideas, kept
   this project going, and basically made my life easer, Thanks!

   Many thank you's for people making documentation comments, and adding to the
   pygame.org wiki.  
   Also many thanks for people creating games and putting them on the 
   pygame.org website for others to learn from and enjoy.

   Lots of thanks to James Paige for hosting the pygame bugzilla.

   Also a big thanks to Roger Dingledine and the crew at SEUL.ORG for our
   excellent hosting.


     Pygame is obviously strongly dependent on SDL and Python. It also
     links to and embeds several other smaller libraries. The font
     module relies on SDL_tff, which is dependent on freetype. The mixer
     (and mixer.music) modules depend on SDL_mixer. The image module
     depends on SDL_image, which also can use libjpeg and libpng. The
     transform module has an embedded version of SDL_rotozoom for its
     own rotozoom function. The surfarray module requires the python
     Numeric package for its multidimensional numeric arrays.

   Todo / Ideas (feel free to submit)


     This library is distributed under GNU LGPL version 2.1, which can
     be found in the file "doc/LGPL". I reserve the right to place
     future versions of this library under a different license.

     This basically means you can use pygame in any project you want,
     but if you make any changes or additions to pygame itself, those
     must be released with a compatible license. (preferably submitted
     back to the pygame project). Closed source and commercial games are

     The programs in the "examples" subdirectory are in the public
