textures?

How do I import textures? Is there any easy way, does somebody have any kind of xtra libraries or something??? And as a subquestion, whats an arc fillet, and how do I use one???

Import textures, just load a bitmap … it’s no harder than that.

Exactly how do I import a bitmap, I asked for an easy way, can U give me some code examples???

Here you go… This should tide you over for awhile.
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// This function loads a 24-bit color (RGB)Windows bitmap and sets it as the current

loadBitmap(char* filename)
{
FILE* bmpfile;
BITMAPFILEHEADER bmfileheader;
BITMAPINFOHEADER bminfoheader;
RGBTRIPLE rgb;

int nTextureWidth;
int nTextureHeight;
int i,j,texpos = 0;
BYTE *pBitmapData;

bmpfile = fopen(filename, "rb");

if (!bmpfile)
exit(1);

fread(&bmfileheader, sizeof(BITMAPFILEHEADER), 1, bmpfile);
fread(&bminfoheader, sizeof(BITMAPINFOHEADER), 1, bmpfile);


nTextureWidth = bminfoheader.biWidth;
nTextureHeight = bminfoheader.biHeight;

pBitmapData = (GLubyte*)malloc(nTextureWidth * nTextureHeight *3);

// read color
for (i = 0; i < nTextureWidth; i++)
{
for(j = nTextureHeight - 1; j>=0 ; j–) //start with the height because the first data you read in the color array of the bitmap
{ // is coord (1.0).
fread(&rgb, sizeof(RGBTRIPLE),1,bmpfile);
pBitmapData[texpos] = rgb.rgbtRed ;
pBitmapData[texpos+1] = rgb.rgbtGreen;
pBitmapData[texpos+2] = rgb.rgbtBlue;
}
}
fclose(bmpfile);
glPixelStorei(GL_UNPACK_ALIGNMENT, 4);
glPixelStorei(GL_UNPACK_ROW_LENGTH, 0);
glPixelStorei(GL_UNPACK_SKIP_ROWS, 0);

return TRUE;

}
