Hi guys.

I'm working on a project using the SDL library, and so far everything has been going great. I have a screen with a main character sprite moving on a map imported from Mappy, with the help of the SDLMappy library. I know it's not much, but I'm new to both SDL and game programming.

Anyway, now I want to implement collision detection, so my character would stop going through walls. I'm pretty sure the usage of this function from the SDLMappy API does the trick:

BLKSTR * MapGetBlock (int x, int y);

Returns a BLKSTR pointer, useful for collision detection and examining a block structure. Note: the x and y paramaters are the offset from the left and top of the map in BLOCKS, NOT pixels. Example:
BLKSTR * myblkstr;
myblkstr = MapGetBlock (xoffinblocks, yoffinblocks);
if (myblkstr->tl) { top left collision is set for this block }

but this explanation doesn't help me much (understand at all). Does anyone know how to make this work? Thanks in advance.
