Sample text

Bits have exactly two potential values, 1 or 0, and are arranged in memory as groups of 8. A group of 8 bits is called a byte. Don’t worry if this sounds like techno-babble to you; Python tends to hide this kind of thing from the programmer. We will use the value 32 for our bit depth because it gives us the most colors; see Table 3-3 for other potential bit-depth values. If you don’t supply a value for the depth or set it to 0, Pygame will use the depth of your desktop. Table 3-3. 7 million colors, with a spare 8 bits * It is possible to have other bit depths, but these are the most common.

Image to load the two images for the background and mouse cursor. convert_alpha() 45 Chapter 3 ■ Introducing Pygame The load function reads a file from your hard drive and returns a surface containing the image data. These are the same type of objects as our display, but they represent images stored in memory and aren’t visible until we draw them to the main display. load reads in the background image and then immediately calls convert, which is a member function for Surface objects. This function converts the image to the same format as our display, because it is faster to draw images if the display is of the same depth.

They exclaim. “Exactly,” I tell them. ” Basic math is built into Python; you can add, subtract, and multiply without importing a special module. But you do need the math module for more advanced functions—the kind of thing you would find on a scientific calculator. See Table 2-5 for a few of them. Table 2-5. 234) pi The value of pi pi*radius**2 34 Chapter 2 ■ Exploring Python Let’s use the math module to calculate the area of a circle, given its radius. 14 something. Fortunately Python has a better memory for numbers than me, and you can rely on it having a more accurate representation of pi.
