al_fread(1) Allegro 5 API


#include <allegro5/allegro.h>
size_t al_fread(ALLEGRO_FILE *f, void *ptr, size_t size)


Read 'size' bytes into the buffer pointed to by 'ptr', from the given file.

Returns the number of bytes actually read. If an error occurs, or the end-of-file is reached, the return value is a short byte count (or zero).

al_fread() does not distinguish between EOF and other errors. Use al_feof(3alleg5) and al_ferror(3alleg5) to determine which occurred.
