       SDL::Overlay - YUV Video overlay

       Core, Video, Structure


       First import the following modules to get access to constants and functions needed for

          use SDL;
          use SDL::Video;
          use SDL::Overlay;

       Init the video subsystem.


       Create a display to use.

          my $display = SDL::Video::set_video_mode(640, 480, 32, SDL_SWSURFACE);

       Create and attach the display to a new overlay

          my $overlay = SDL::Overlay->new( 100, 100, SDL_YV12_OVERLAY, $display);


       A "SDL_Overlay" allows for video rendering on an "SDL_Surface" which is a display.

       The term 'overlay' is a misnomer since, unless the overlay is created in hardware, the
       contents for the display surface underneath the area where the overlay is shown will be
       overwritten when the overlay is displayed.


   new ( $width, $height, $YUV_flag, $display)
       The constructor creates a SDL::Overlay of the specified width, height and format (see
       "YUV_Flags" list below of available formats), for the provided display.

       Note the 'display' argument needs to actually be the surface created by
       "SDL::Video::SetVideoMode" otherwise this function will segfault.

          my $overlay = SDL::Overlay->new( $width, $height, $YUV_flag, $display );

       Overlay format (see YUV_Flags)

   w, h
       Width and height of overlay

       Number of planes in the overlay. Usually either 1 or 3

       An array of pitches, one for each plane. Pitch is the length of a row in bytes.

       As of release 2.3 direct right to overlay is disable.

       An array of pointers to the data of each plane. The overlay should be locked before these
       pointers are used.

       see SDL::Video::lock_YUV_overlay, SDL::Video::unload_YUV_overlay

       This will be set to 1 if the overlay is hardware accelerated.
