Examples that fully utilize the VideoCore IV Graphics Capabilities

Some very powerful example programs that fully use the VideoCore IV graphics system can be found in the /opt/vc/ directory. Instructions are in /opt/vc/src/hello_pi/README that tell you to first do the following:

	make -C libs/ilclient
	make -C libs/vgfont

then go to one of the example directories, run make, and then execute the newly created executable. For example:

	cd /opt/vc/src/hello_pi/hello_videocube

To stop it, use <ctrl-c>.

Note: You cannot run these from a remote terminal. ssh -X only works with X-window programs. These work directly with the VideoCore IV processor.

Try the other examples and study their source code.
