    yes this is true, I was hoping there was a jpeg to array converter or something lol

    this way I can load things like jpegs directly intothe binary and load it in a way that I'd like

    You're writing code, right? So why can't you create such a tool yourself?

    Here it is anyway.

    Code:
    /* anything2c.c */
    
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    int main(int argc, char **argv)
    {
        FILE *infp;
        char *comma = "";
        int ch;
        int i;
    
        infp = fopen(argv[1], "rb");
        if(infp == NULL) exit(1);
        printf("unsigned char %s[] = {\n", argv[2]);
        while((ch = fgetc(infp)) != EOF)
        {
            printf("%s    0x%02X", comma, ch);
            comma = ",\n";
        }
        printf("\n};\n");
        fclose(infp);
        return 0;
    }
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Why is this such a problem?
    Why won't the normal resource system work well for you?

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    On a non-Windows system?
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Well, there's been no mention of Linux, so I still have to ask o_O
    Besides... are there not similar systems in other operating systems, as well?

    I was assuming some UNIX-like system because the OP mentioned XPM format.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    XPM == "X Pixmap."
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Yes, you are right. The program will be compatible with linux and windows so I want to include the image inside the binary for ease of portability
