Although this question is not about a game, I'm posting it here as I'm guessing that you guys will be able to give me a better answer than any of the other channels.
Basically I'm looking to write an app to display text in fullscreen that can then be displayed on a TV through the TV-out port of a graphics card. The purpose is to display system statistics for a whole bunch of machines. All it needs to do is be able to read a text file and then display the data to the screen, and be capable of rotating through a number of screens to show different statuses.
Can anyone give me any pointers? - I'm guessing the best approach is a simple app in C to read the files - but I'm not sure how I'd then go about displaying the text in fullscreen. Perhaps I could make use of some sort of game engine to do the job?
