LOading BMP files

Where can I find information how to load BMP files.
But not with the aux Library.

thx all.

Check http://www.wotsit.org for a description of the BMP file format.

bmp files dont (usually) handle alpha or compression a better format would be tga or png , if u wanna use a library www.openil.org handles most image formats

thx for your help.
I have something found about tga loading.
