NAME

       replace_extension  -  Replaces  filename+extension with a new extension tail. Allegro game
       programming library.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       char *replace_extension(char *dest, const char *filename, const char *ext, int size);

DESCRIPTION

       Replaces the specified filename+extension with a  new  extension  tail,  storing  at  most
       `size'  bytes  into  the `dest' buffer. If the filename doesn't have any extension at all,
       `ext' will be appended to it, adding a dot character if  needed.  You  can  use  the  same
       buffer  both  as  input and output because Allegro internally works on a copy of the input
       before touching `dest'. Example:

          replace_extension(buf, "C:\\game\\prog.exe",
                            "dat", sizeof(buf));

RETURN VALUE

       Returns a copy of the `dest' parameter.
