ALLEGRO_BITMAP *al_load_bitmap_f(ALLEGRO_FILE *fp, const char *ident)
Introduced in 5.0.0

Loads an image from an ALLEGRO_FILE stream into an ALLEGRO_BITMAP. The file type is determined by the passed 'ident' parameter, which is a file name extension including the leading dot.

Returns NULL on error. The file remains open afterwards.

Note: the core Allegro library does not support any image file formats by default. You must use the allegro_image addon, or register your own format handler.
