    Question How to save an 'image' from the graphics mode to HD

    What do I do to save these pixels to a (bitmap?) file like a .bmp or something similar?

    I have totally no idea, didn't findanything about it on the web or in tutorials.

    Newbie to Turbo c++ compiler 3.0, so if anything could help me a hand? help much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,



    Ps: sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language

    Wanted to edit my former post, but as non-registered I can't.
    So sorry, I didn't want to do any unnessescary bumping.

    Wanted to say:

    Should I have posted it in the DOS C forum instead?
    And is it unpossible to write the pixels to a bitmap file with some 'simpl"' short code?

    bmp files are relatively simple, being uncompressed. you could try looking at the bmp file and deriving its structure. or you could search online for the structure. i remember a site on file formats, but i forget where that was...

    deriving it's structure ??? :-/ what do you mean? Import it (ifstream) as a binary file???
    Sorry, I'm just a beginner.

    I'll go to the site, thanks mate!
