Simple library to load images of various formats as SDL surfaces

This is a simple library to load images of various formats as SDL surfaces. This library supports BMP, PPM, PCX, GIF, JPEG, PNG, TGA, and TIFF formats.

API #include “SDL_image.h”

SDL_Surface *IMG_Loadconst char *file; or
SDL_Surface *IMG_Load_RWSDL_RWops *src, int freesrc; or
SDL_Surface *IMG_Load_RWSDL_RWops *src, int freesrc, char *type;

where type is a string specifying the format i.e. “PNG” or “pcx”. Note that IMG_Load_RW cannot load TGA images.

An example program ‘showimage’ is included, with source in showimage.c
