help with bitmaps

hi there
is there any easy way to load bitmaps without using glaux(cuz its not working and i dunno why)?

Off the top of my head…

FILE *f;
struct stat s;
void *m;

stat(filename, &s);
m = malloc(s.st_size);
f = fopen(filename, “r”);
fread(m, s.st_size, 1, f);

works with any sort of file too, not just bitmaps.

Search for .BMP file format on

It will be an easy task to code a function that loads the bitmap into memory.
