Graphics and windowing library
OpenGUI (formerly FastGL) is a high-level C/C++ graphics & windowing library built upon a fast, low-level x86 ASM graphics kernel. It provides 2D drawing primitives and an event-driven windowing API for easy application development, and it supports the BMP image file format. You can write apps in the old Borland BGI style or in a windowed style like QT. OpenGUI supports the keyboard and mouse as event sources, the Linux framebuffer, SVGAlib, and XFree86-DGA2 (HW accelerated) as drawing backends, Mesa3D under Linux, and 8, 15, 16, and 32-bpp color modes.
