Comparing CD with Other Graphics Libraries

There are other graphics libraries, with some portability among operational systems, available on the Internet. Among them we can highlight:

Most of them are aimed only at one type of driver, usually display or images, and sometimes user interface routines were also included. Others add 3D drawing routines, as well as scene illumination routines. All this unnecessarily increases their complexity and does not make them more complete as 2D graphic libraries.

There are also several Graphics User Interface libraries that contain drawing functions, like Qt and wxWidgets.

As to performance, CD is as good as any other, in some cases having a better performance. Thus, the CD library offers unique features and quality as a portable 2D graphic library.
