hi i'm a total noob at using visual c++, totally no idea to start off.
my problem is that i have to read a bitmap (492x270, black and white only-i think)which is a picture of a maze. i need to know how to read the image and what do i do to see the data so that i can start solving the maze? how do i put my start points? how do i define which pixel is the "wall" or the "route"? how do i get the route to be displayed in a different color and "over-layed" on the initial picture? etc.
i know that i need to #include
but what do i include!!?? where do i start?
please remember, i'm a total idiot, i beseech all ye programming gurus to enlighten me! could you guys please help me!!!
thanks a million!
