NAME

       is_linear_bitmap - Tells if a bitmap is linear. Allegro game programming library.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       int is_linear_bitmap(BITMAP *bmp);

DESCRIPTION

       Returns TRUE if bmp is a linear bitmap, i.e. a bitmap that can be accessed linearly within
       each scanline (for example a memory bitmap, the DOS VGA or SVGA screen,  Windows  bitmaps,
       etc).  Linear bitmaps can be used with the _putpixel(), _getpixel(), bmp_write_line(), and
       bmp_read_line() functions.

       Historically there were only linear and planar bitmaps for Allegro, so  is_linear_bitmap()
       is actually an alias for !is_planar_bitmap().
