For some reason I am having trouble with opening a font. My error comes back "couldn't open font". I am using Code::Block gcc. Any ideas?
//Initialize SDL_ttf
    if( TTF_Init() == -1 )
    //Open the font
    TTF_Font * font = TTF_OpenFont( "lazy.ttf", 28 );
     //If there was an error in loading the font
    if( font == NULL )
        char* error = TTF_GetError();
