3.2.15 IMG_LoadTGA_RW

SDL_Surface *IMG_LoadTGA_RW(SDL_RWops *src)

The source SDL_RWops as a pointer. The TGA image is loaded from this.

Load src as a TGA image for use as a surface, if TGA support is compiled into the SDL_image library. If you try to load a non TGA image, you might succeed even when it's not TGA image formatted data, this is because the TGA has no magic, which is a way of identifying a filetype from a signature in it's contents. So be careful with this.

Returns: a pointer to the image as a new SDL_Surface. NULL is returned on errors, like if TGA is not supported, or a read error.

// load sample.tga into image
SDL_Surface *image;
SDL_RWops *rwop;
rwop=SDL_RWFromFile("sample.tga", "rb");
if(!image) {
    printf("IMG_LoadTGA_RW: %s\n", IMG_GetError());
    // handle error
