Hi

I have been working through a tutorial book that uses SDL. I have a piece of code that reads a ppm file and displays the image on the screen. The program seems to read the file and set the hight and width correctly creating a window the width and hight as the image but there is no image. If i move the image file the program return an error incating the image is missing so i know its reading it. Any help would be greatly appreicated. I have included the code.

Thanks

Steve
