I am trying to read a bitmap using the BITMAP structure. I have loaded in textures like this and bitblt them onto a ddraw surface, but how do you just read the raw data. I want to copy the bitmap data into a character array, how do I do that? Does it have something to do with the bmBits data member? Thanks. *** Triality ***

It is easy to view a bmp, just see the followwing codes:
static char *lrBmpFile(char *filename,long off,RGB *pal)
{ FILE *f; char *p,r,g,b,*img;
short i,j,palCount,bit; int wByte, wPixel, h, len, wid;

if ((f=fopen(filename,"rb"))==NULL) {
ldraw_error=LERR_NOTFIND;
return NULL;
}

fseek(f,2+off,SEEK_SET); fread(&wByte,4,1,f);
fseek(f,10+off,SEEK_SET); fread(&wPixel,4,1,f);
wByte-=wPixel; palCount=(wPixel-54)/4;
fseek(f,18+off,SEEK_SET); fread(&wPixel,4,1,f);
fread(&h,4,1,f); wByte/=h; len=wPixel; wid=h;

p=new char[len*wid+8]; img=p;
if (!p) {
fclose(f); ldraw_error=LERR_NOMEM;
return NULL;
}
*(short*)p=len; p+=2;
*(short*)p=wid; p+=2;

fseek(f,2,SEEK_CUR); bit=fgetc(f)+(int)fgetc(f)*256;
fseek(f,54+off,SEEK_SET);

for (i=0;i fscanf(f,"%c%c%c%*c",&b,&g,&r);
if (pal) { pal.r=r>>2; pal[i].g=g>>2; pal[i].b=b>>2; }
} p+=(int)len*(wid-1);
for (i=0;i for (j=0;j fread(p,1,len,f);
}
fclose(f); lsetHotXY(0,0,img);
ldraw_error=LERR_NONE;
return img;
}

That is some of the most confusing code I have ever seen. Anyways, I wrote a .bmp loader last night, but it would''ve been a lot easier the other way.
