As I told it, I am using SDL (Simple Directmedia Layer) whose API is defined
in C. Of course there exist some C++ bindings for it, but I don't think
this would be a good idea to complexify the things many more.

So, I want to use toLua 5.0 with lua 5.0, SDL 1.2 and gcc 3.3.3.

So far my example relies on luaSDL, as this defines the SDL_Event union
typedef. I can send you a simple version but this will make use of SDL
eventhough. Can it be of any help for you ?
