OK. Getting SDL to run under Solaris really isn't a priority for me
right now, I was just getting bored yesterday and thought I'd give
it a shot.

Aha. I generally use UpdateRect(0, 0, 0, 0) to get a full-screen up-
date after I've done all my blitting... Typically, I redraw the
entire screen every frame, so I *suppose* redrawing by rectangles
could actually cost me performance. I haven't tried it, and I haven't
checked the code, though...

I thought so too. :) I'll give it another shot when I get home

OK. I don't have the code here (at school), but I can send it to you
later tonight (local time, of course :).

Yeah, it's X11 using 8 bpp.
