I prefer control my openGL applications, written in C, with the FUDI
protocol, using the netsend and netreceive objects. Of course it makes
the project more difficult to program than with Gem, but it's much more

Using the SDL library, I can work on my application in a window, then
switch to fullscreen for the performance.

That's one of the thing you can do with the FUDI protocol: control
an application on a separate computer.
