    hi. I'm trying to convert a .BIR file into a bitmap file.

    What components does a bitmap file has? Anybody has an idea?
    Is there any websites useful for converting files into .bmp files using C++?

    Wotsit is a useful place when looking for information on file formats.

    File reading and writing is like my favourite programming exercise!! Bitmaps are really easy to use ( even easier using win32 api functions but I'm talking about raw reading with your own function ) ...

    I used wotsit, the files there gave me a really good insight into the way bitmaps worked and how they were structured.

    Reading and writing .bmp is a frequently asked question in many programming groups on the net. Google is your friend here ..

    If you need any help once you get started I'll gladly help you.
