[A5] Destroying event sources
Never used A5 before; I installed it literally not over an hour ago, and I'm surprised how quickly I understood the new paradigms. I can't wait to see how it performs.
Anyway, when I create a normal event source such as with al_get_keyboard_event_source (), do I need to destroy it afterwards? I see a function for destroying user events, but not this one in particular.
You never need to destroy event sources, unless you create them yourself. So if you use al_init_user_event_source, then you need to destroy it with al_destroy_user_event_source when you're done with it. And event sources automagically un-register themselves from event queues when they are destroyed, so you don't need to worry about that.
I know it was probably a typo, but I love you for creating that word!
No mistake there.
In any case, this goes right into my dictionary!
That term was popular here years ago. I simply adopted its use.

Seems like I missed some great times. Thanks for explaining!
Even WIKI knows that word, WOW, I feel so lame right now!
