As an update, I have tested this on Linux (/proc/acpi and /proc/apm),
Mac OS X, and Windows, and updated the project files to support it.
I would appreciate if someone could poke at this on iPhone, Windows CE,
and Nintendo DS, as I can't implement these platforms myself.
All interested parties should give it a try on their machines for the
standard platforms (try testpower.c in the "test" directory). Please let
me know if it got the information wrong, etc.
If your platform needs tweaking and you want to tweak:
- Possibly implement src/power/MY_PLATFORM/SDL_syspower.c
- Possibly update the list of drivers at the top of src/power/SDL_power.c
- Define SDL_POWER_MY_PLATFORM as appropriate.
- Add src/power/SDL_power.c and src/power/MY_PLATFORM/SDL_syspower.c to
The code for platforms like BeOS and OS/2 is in revision control, but I
can't test these to even see if they compile...heck, at the moment, I
don't think we even support these platforms in SDL 1.3, but I filled
them in, just in case.
Comments, questions, problems: please see me.
