Programming a Test Card

Hi friends

I need advice on how to make a simple application that makes a resizeable display of vertical stripes, black on white, in groups getting ever finer. A crude test card is all it needs to be. This is to help settle the question about video resolution possible using Linux drivers for common graphics cards, and whether or not they are knobbled. This is not about the number of pixels in the display. It is about the crispness, clarity and detail, and the video bandwidth delivered.

I use Linux desktops and apps, but don't have any much experience in coding in C. For me, using gcc has so far been confined to "make configure" and "make install", usually with problems.

The motivation is explained in my other posting..

An example (more elaborate than what we need) can be seen here

I am hoping there is some kind of template example program out there that can be altered a bit to provide this temporary tool.

Thanks if you can help.
