RE: Windows position

It took me a long time to really begin to understand how the FLTK documentation is organized. I started using it with Lua-FLTK a couple of years ago, and I still have trouble understanding parts of it. One thing that might help with the methods, though, is to note the class hierarchy. Typically the methods of the higher levels are inherited by those below it, as far as I understand it. Actually using these methods, though, has be the most difficult thing for me. Some methods are used to perform actions, some simply return a property of a widget, and some are completely beyond my understanding of what they do or how to make them do anything.

But as with anything new, even the basics seem terribly complicated until you start learning, then the more you work with it the faster things seem to click. That first push always seems to be the hardest, though. I've been poking at Tcl/Tk and C programming for nearly as long as Lua/FLTK, but have yet to actually learn anything useable about either one. But I guess with Lua, as with shell scripting, I actually had projects in mind to begin with, so there was something to motivate me. With C I have no small projects that I couldn't instead do with script more easily, so I guess there's little motivation beyond "Gee, it'd be useful if I knew how to program with c".
