    Graphics in Windows Console

    Hello guys!
    I decided to publish my new creation here in this forum.
    Ok. What i've created is an application that loads TGA(Targa) files
    and the renders onto the Windows Console.

    You can load and render any image you want in TGA format.

    Heres a video showing this application in action:



    Thank you for your time. Enjoy and don't forget to get the source code from the video description.

    May I suggest github for posting your source code.

    Your UnloadTGA function is a huge memory leak. You should free the memory, not just set the pointers to NULL.

    Also, don't use goto unless it's absolutely necessary, which in your case isn't.

    Lastly, errors should be printed on stderr because that is its purpose.

    I'm not trying to discourage you, you understand, I'm just trying to help you make it better.
    Devoted my life to programming...

    No problem...I really appreciate your comments about my code...yeah well you're right i think i'll be more careful next time.

    Thank you

    PS: Now you can edit the source code and make it better that'll be cool.
