al_load_bitmap_flags_f(1) Allegro 5 API


#include <allegro5/allegro.h>
ALLEGRO_BITMAP *al_load_bitmap_flags_f(ALLEGRO_FILE *fp,
   const char *ident, int flags)


Loads an image from an ALLEGRO_FILE(3alleg5) stream into a new ALLEGRO_BITMAP(3alleg5). The file type is determined by the passed 'ident' parameter, which is a file name extension including the leading dot. If (and only if) 'ident' is NULL, the file type is determined with al_identify_bitmap_f(3alleg5) instead.

The flags parameter is the same as for al_load_bitmap_flags(3alleg5).

Returns NULL on error. The file remains open afterwards.

Note: the core Allegro library does not support any image file formats by default. You must use the allegro_image addon, or register your own format handler.
