NAME

       al_itofix - Allegro 5 API

SYNOPSIS

              #include <allegro5/allegro.h>

              al_fixed al_itofix(int x);

DESCRIPTION

       Converts  an  integer  to  fixed  point.   This is the same thing as x<<16.  Remember that
       overflows (trying to convert an integer greater than  32767)  and  underflows  (trying  to
       convert  an  integer lesser than -32768) are not detected even in debug builds! The values
       simply “wrap around”.

       Example:

              al_fixed number;

              /* This conversion is OK. */
              number = al_itofix(100);
              assert(al_fixtoi(number) == 100);

              number = al_itofix(64000);

              /* This check will fail in debug builds. */
              assert(al_fixtoi(number) == 64000);

RETURN VALUE

       Returns the value of the integer converted to fixed point ignoring overflows.
