DETAILED DESCRIPTION
       A graphical surface structure which is used to store graphical data.

       Surfaces	represent areas	of 'graphical' memory, memory that can be
       drawn to	or blitted onto	other Surfaces.

       Todo:
	   Implement a better constructor scheme, where	the first argument is
	   a dummy class which specified what to do. This would	allow a
	   construct where a surface can be loaded from	an image file without
	   first having	to create an unitialized object.

CONSTRUCTOR & DESTRUCTOR DOCUMENTATION
   SDLmm::Surface::Surface (SDL_Surface	* surface) [inline, explicit]
       Constructor from	an SDL_Surface*.

       This creates a new Surface object from an existing SDL_Surface. It's
       very important not to free the original surface since that will cause a
       problem when the	object is destructed (SDL_Surface storage freed
       twice). Use with	caution.

   SDLmm::Surface::Surface (const Surface & other) [inline]
   SDLmm::Surface::Surface () [inline]
       Create an uninitialized surface.

       Warning:
	   Trying to use an uninitialized surface will result in crashes. Most
	   functions to	not have any checks to see whether the surface is
	   initialized or not.

MEMBER FUNCTION	DOCUMENTATION
   Surface SDLmm::Surface::CreateSurface (void * pixels, int w,	int h, int d,
       int p, Uint32 Rmask = 0,	Uint32 Gmask = 0, Uint32 Bmask = 0, Uint32
       Amask = 0) [inline, static]
       Create a	new Surface from the provided pixel data.

       The data	stored in pixels is assumed to be of the depth specified in
       the parameter d.	The pixel data is not copied into the SDL_Surface
       structure me so it should no be freed until the Surface object has been
       destructed

       Parameters:

       flags  the type of surface that should be created which is OR'd
	      combination of the values	as described in	the SDL	documentation.

       w, h   width and	height of the surface to create.

       d      color depth in bits per pixel to use for this surface. If	zero,
	      use the depth of the current display.

       p      pitch the	length (pitch) of each scanline	in bytes.

       RGBAmask
	      optional binary masks used to retrieve individual	color values.

   Surface SDLmm::Surface::CreateSurface (Uint32 flags,	int w, int h, int d,
       Uint32 Rmask = 0, Uint32	Gmask =	0, Uint32 Bmask	= 0, Uint32 Amask = 0)
       [inline,	static]
       Allocate	an empty RGB surface.

       If depth	is 8 bits an empty palette is allocated	for the	surface,
       otherwise a 'packed-pixel' SDL_PixelFormat is created using the
       [RGBA]mask's provided. The flags	specifies

       Parameters:

       flags  the type of surface that should be created which is OR'd
	      combination of the values	as described in	the SDL	documentation.

       w, h   width and	height of the surface to create.

       d      color depth in bits per pixel to use for this surface. If	zero,
	      use the depth of the current display.

       RGBAmask
	      optional binary masks used to retrieve individual	color values.

   Surface SDLmm::Surface::CreateSurface (const	BaseSurface & other) [inline,
       static]
   Surface SDLmm::Surface::Duplicate ()	const [inline]
   Surface SDLmm::Surface::LoadBMP (const std::string &	file) [inline, static]
       Loads a Windows BMP and returns a new Surface.

       Parameters:

       file   the file to attempt to load

       Returns:
	   True	if the loading succeeded, false	otherwise.

   Surface SDLmm::Surface::LoadBMP (const char * file) [inline,	static]
       Loads a Windows BMP and returns it as a new Surface.

       If the image couldn't be	loaded,	the Surface will be invalid. You can
       check the success of the	image loading using the	Surface.valid()	method
       like the	example	code below.

	     SDLmm::Surface img(SDLmm::Surface::LoadBMP('myimage.bmp'));
	     if(!img.valid()) {
	       cerr << 'Loading	of image myimage.bmp failed!0;
	       exit(1);
	     }

       Parameters:

       file   the file to attempt to load

       Returns:
	   True	if the loading succeeded, false	otherwise.

   bool	SDLmm::Surface::SetDisplayFormat () [virtual]
       Convert the surface to the display format.

       This function converts the surface to the pixel format and colors of
       the video framebuffer, making it	suitable for fast blitting onto	the
       display surface.

       If you want to take advantage of	hardware colorkey or alpha blit
       acceleration, you should	set the	colorkey and alpha value before
       calling this function.

       Returns:
	   The functions returns true if the conversion	succeeded or false
	   otherwise. If the conversion	failed,	the BaseSurface	object will
	   not have changed.

       Note:
	   Please note that this function doesn't return a new,	modified
	   object like the SDL_DisplayFormat() function	does. Thus there is no
	   need	to manually free the old surface.

       See also:
	   SetDisplayFormatAlpha(), SetAlpha(),	SetColorKey()

       Reimplemented from SDLmm::BaseSurface.

   bool	SDLmm::Surface::SetDisplayFormatAlpha () [virtual]
       Convert the surface to the display format.

       This function converts the surface to the pixel format and colors of
       the video framebuffer plus an alpha channel, making it suitable for
       fast blitting onto the display surface.

       If you want to take advantage of	hardware colorkey or alpha blit
       acceleration, you should	set the	colorkey and alpha value before
       calling this function.

       Returns:
	   The functions returns true if the conversion	succeeded or false
	   otherwise. If the conversion	failed,	the BaseSurface	object will
	   not have changed.

       Note:
	   Please note that this function doesn't return a new,	modified
	   object like the SDL_DisplayFormatAlpha() function does. Thus	there
	   is no need to manually free the old surface.

       See also:
	   SetDisplayFormat(), SetAlpha(), SetColorKey()

       Reimplemented from SDLmm::BaseSurface.

   Surface & SDLmm::Surface::operator= (const Surface &	other) [inline]
       Implementation of operator=.
