[Sorry if I'm posting this a second time. The first try got bounced
because I wasn't suscribed so I'm trying again.]
This is probably a newbie question, so you can answer it with links
and/or pointers do the manuals. I couldn't find anything mainly
because my english is not very good, so I don't know exactly what to
I'm writing a small SDL program to display the Mandelbrot Set. I'm
implementing a zoom function. The idea is to mark a rectangle with
the mouse and zooming to that area. I catch the MOUSEBUTTONDOWN and
MOUSEBUTTONUP and set the rectangle's corners to the points marked.
Then I redraw the screen.
So far so good.
The problem is that when I press the mouse's button it doesn't
generate *one* event but many. So when the program finishes
redrawing, it starts to zoom in again... and again......
I tried using
as I found here
but I still have the same problem.
So my questions are: ¿How do I do this? and ¿Am I designing wrong this
