    Loading a resource file

    Yo everybody. Im wondering if anyone knows how to load a resource file(*.res) to a SDL application instead of using alot of *.BMP files. You know how to do that?

    You really can't use resourse files with the SDL
    because the SDL is cross platform while .res files
    are only used on windows. You can write utilities to
    combine bitmaps into one and there is the SDL image
    library that lets you load pcx files.

    program data in the .EXE, Can't come up with a name at the
    moment.
