Loading up a texture

Is it possible to load up a texture without glaux?

Yes, first glaux library is outdated, replaced by glut. Except glut does not have a texture loading function.

There are a few diffrent texture loading routines out there.
I like to use the TGA file format, but there are also BMP loaders also.

nehe.gamedev.net has some TGA and BMP loader code, also if you do a search you can find other sites with texture loader code.

If you use GLFW, you get easy opengl window initialization and the newes version also has TGA texture loader.

Ah thanks very much

just load up tga/bmp file with c+┬▒class ifstream, cut the header and you got the pixels!
