    need for an image saving code (e.g. BMP)

    Hello everyone

    I have an urgent need for a code that saves an image data to a file readable by any image viewer. I assume a simple format would be BMP but there are probably others, too. The reason that I'm asking here is that probably some of you might have a code that does it and would like to share it with me. I'm compiling and running the program on a computer where I can't install anything, so any installable library wouldn't be the answer. The images would be pretty "ordinary" I guess, 24 bit with no alpha channel.

    I haven't found it by googling. Thank you very much if any of you can do this simple favor.

    Let me just add that this is not a homework assignment or anything like that (like I said, any commonly readable 24 bit format is good) but my personal project. However, it would make it a lot easier if someone could point me to a right place where I can find this part of it ready (because saving an image is an old trick). I also understand there are people who don't want to give away things that one can make by himself.

    You mean googling "BMP source code" didn't show anything useful?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Alright, I didn't try that one, and when I did, there was one code that worked with very little modification. Thanks Salem!
