Graphics Driver

Post by EdsEnquir » Wed, 19 Nov 2003 19:40:05


I'm in the process of working out the best way of getting access to
all the functionality provided in my graphics hardware (C&T B69000).
The drivers provided by MW work fine up to a point but access to
functionalty beyond basic graphics seems near impossible. For example
multiple viewports and transparent viewports.

Writing a driver should not be too troublesome? Surely? I know a
moderate amount about C programming but have never had to program a
driver. I have been suprised not to find a universal template for a
graphics driver which you modify to suit your particular graphics
chip.

a) Does anybody know of / or have a universal template?
b) Does anyody have a driver for the above graphics chip?
c) Can anybody offer a tutorial / source code of a driver? I have
never even seem what the format / structure of driver source code
should be.

TIA
