+SDL-ctypes is a wrapper module for the `Simple DirectMedia Layer`_ (SDL) and
+its companion libraries SDL_image, SDL_mixer and SDL_ttf.
+Example programs ported from the SDL library are in the ``test`` directory.
+You can use SDL-ctypes to access all SDL functions and data types.
+Pixel and audio buffers can be manipulated using either slices or NumPy_.
+SDL can also provide a context for PyOpenGL_ to work with.

+The API documentation lists core functions in both their originating module
and the SDL module for readability.
