How to store texture names so they can be read?

Recommended Posts

I''m gonna let an object read the texture file names from a text file and store them in memory, the problem arises when auxDIBImageLoad reads the filename. I thought a pointer to an array of chars would do it but I was wrong. What should I store the names as since chars won''t do? glGenTextures will not have this code: int LoadGLTextures() // Load Bitmaps And Convert To Textures { int Status=FALSE; // Status Indicator char texture[10] = "Mud.bmp"; char *ptexture = texture; AUX_RGBImageRec *TextureImage[1]; // Create Storage Space For The Texture memset(TextureImage,0,sizeof(void *)*1); // Set The Pointer To NULL // Load The Bitmap, Check For Errors, If Bitmap''s Not Found Quit if (TextureImage[0]=LoadBMP(ptexture)) { Status=TRUE; // Set The Status To TRUE glGenTextures(1, &texture[0]); // Create Three Textures // Create MipMapped Texture glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture[0]); Neither have I been able to find any documentation on the auxDIBImageLoad function.

The function auxDIBImageLoad handles a chars just fine. One problem you have seems to be your call to glGenTextures(1, &texture[0]);. You defined texture as char texture[10] where texture should be GLuint texture[10]. If you defined it twice that could cause a problem. For loading an image, doing something like this should work fine:

GLuint texture[3];
int LoadGLTextures() // Load Bitmaps And Convert To Textures
{
int Status=FALSE; // Status Indicator
char *texname;
char ptexture[40];
texname="mud.bmp";
sprintf(ptexture,texname);
AUX_RGBImageRec *TextureImage[1];
memset(TextureImage,0,sizeof(void *)*1);
if (TextureImage[0]=LoadBMP(ptexture))
{
Status=TRUE; // Set The Status To TRUE
glGenTextures(1, &texture[0]); // Create Three Textures
// Create MipMapped Texture
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture[0]);
}
