SDL game

Recommended Posts

SDL_LoadBMP() does what the name implies, it loads a Windows or OS/2 Bitmap and returns a pointer to an SDL_Surface that contains the image data in a form usable by other SDL functions.
filename is an instance of the string class, c_str() is a method within the string class that return the contents of the string as a const char* which is required since SDL_LoadBMP will only except const char * as it's prototype is SDL_Surface *SDL_LoadBMP(const char *file);

DEV-C++ is horribly out of date and buggy I recommend you switch to the express edition of Microsoft's Visual C++ Or Code::Blocks.

Between this and your other thread it is clear that you do not yet understand the basics of C++. Delving into SDL at this point will likely be confusing and counter productive for you. I would advise you look into a good book on C++ and try get comfortable with the language itself. This generally involves writing lots of console programs to get used to the syntax and semantics of the language.
