    Question Hello all, a newbie's question about image reading

    I know that this may or may not be common knowledge, but I'm trying to find out the header length of a bitmap image file, you know the stuff before it starts telling what the image is... Anyway, I'm trying to make a tiling system in DirectX, but in order to do that I need to be able to tile images... and in order to do that I need to know the length of the header in a bitmap image. ANY help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Do a search at MSDN with google, the bitmap header structure is standard under Windows.

    my name is basically...

    my name basically means Plastic Soldier. You know the little green army men that used to be quite prevalent as toys in the 80's? Well, when I first started doing martial arts, they said I was about as flexible as one of them, one of the plastic soldiers. I spell it differently, due to religious beliefs (SOULjah) and Plastyk just happened. I don't really wanna offend people here with my religious beliefs, cuz I know that some people don't take kindly to Christians.
