al_load_bitmap_font(1) Allegro 5 API


#include <allegro5/allegro_font.h>
ALLEGRO_FONT *al_load_bitmap_font(const char *fname)


Load a bitmap font from a file. This is done by first calling al_load_bitmap_flags(3alleg5) and then al_grab_font_from_bitmap(3alleg5).

If you wanted to load an old A4 font, for example, it would be better to load the bitmap yourself in order to call al_convert_mask_to_alpha(3alleg5) on it before passing it to al_grab_font_from_bitmap(3alleg5).
