[SDL] Quick question regarding distribution

Thanks, Sam. I just wanted to make sure.

  On a different note, if I want to compile SDL into a static library, should I #define any macros in order to make it not export its symbols like it would for a dll?

  Kind regards,

  Nope, it's not required, although some attribution is appreciated. :)

    Hi all,

    I am new to SDL, so please forgive me if this question has been addressed before. First of all I want to extend my thanks to the developers for what seems to be a simple, easy to use yet very sophisticated library! Now, to my actual question.

    In the source snapshot zip archive, I see a file called README-SDL.txt. This file says:

    "Please distribute this file with the SDL runtime environment:"

    Does this mean that I have to redistribute this file with any binary packages that I release which links statically to SDL? I would rather not do so if it is not an official requirement, which the Zlib/Libpng license does not seem to indicate that it is.

    Thanks in advance for any clarifications on this.

    Kind regards,
