I'm using Dev-CPP w/ Allegro lib. When running a program and trying to exit via clicking the "X" at the top right corner of the window, I get a warning, improper way to exit message. How do you get rid of this and make it where you may exit the program by clicking the x at the corner of the window?

I don't know how Allegro notifies you that the X button was pressed, but when you get that notification, just use exit(0);

Note however that your function will get called from inside of another thread, so variables might contain invalid data if you try to read or write them while the main thread is doing the same. Try setting a volatile flag variable and then checking it every now and again in your main loop.
