Guile-SDL is a set of bindings to the Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL). With them, Guile programmers can have easy access to graphics, sound and device input (keyboards, joysticks, mice, etc.).

Most of the SDL functions are wrapped, with the exception of a few functions that are too C-centric. The SDL threads and audio functions are not included. However audio programming can be done with the module SDL_mixer

Also included is SDL_gfx 2.0.22 and bindings for it.

NB. the guile-sdl2 project has been launched to create pure Scheme bindings for SDL2.
