Please pardon my ignorance as I just picked up computer graphics  Smiley.

What is blit as many of the posts here are often about blitzing of images/background etc  Huh?

Is there anywhere where I can get some help/tutorial on graphic theories/methods that "accelerate" drawing onto the screen?

Thanks in advance

No, that's meaning two: Tongue

2. [historical, rare] Sometimes all-capitalized as `BLIT': an early experimental bit-mapped terminal designed by Rob Pike at Bell Labs, later commercialized as the AT&T 5620. (The folk etymology from `Bell Labs Intelligent Terminal' is incorrect. Its creators liked to claim that "Blit" stood for the Bacon, Lettuce, and Interactive Tomato.)

I do like the Jargon File - it's full of fascinating stuff like that.  Blit came from BLT, came from BLock Transfer, came from PDP-10 assembly.  Marvellous.  The most I ever did with a PDP-10 was a bit of BASIC and playing Pac-man, but I still use the vocabulary it spawned today.  That's cool! Cool
