al_fread — Allegro 5 API

Synopsis

#include <allegro5/allegro.h>

size_t al_fread(ALLEGRO_FILE *f, void *ptr, size_t size)

Description

Read 'size' bytes into the buffer pointed to by 'ptr', from the given file.

Returns the number of bytes actually read. If an error occurs, or the end-of-file is reached, the return value is a short byte count (or zero).

al_fread() does not distinguish between EOF and other errors. Use al_feof(3) and al_ferror(3) to determine which occurred.
