    Lightbulb Just need some advice

    I have read of a couple ways to load BMP images to the screen. But what is the best way? The way I read of, talked about first entering Video Graphics Array mode 13h, but isn't this a little bit old? Plus. I have been programming in C++ for a while now but I have yet to find a book I can say was "great". Does anyone know of some really good C++ books I can check out? Thanks.

    Concerning the BMP thing, I don't know sorry. About the book, there is a thread about this about half way down the page: Best book for C++
    Personally, I like Stroustrup's "The C++ Programming Language," but it is probably not a book to learn from. I just use it as a reference.
