Comparing values

When I put in

fseek(inptr, -(bi.biWidth*sizeof(RGBTRIPLE)+padding), SEEK_CUR);  

I ended up getting this error code:

I'm not sure why I'm not getting the right output and this error code

fseek() accepts a long int as the second parameter and via arithmetic conversion you're passing unsigned long as a second argument.

Cast it to long int by inserting (long int) right after the minus sign and the runtime error will go away.

By the way, your code up there is missing a semicolon at the end of this line: fseek(inptr, padding, SEEK_CUR)

  • Thanks buddy, had a similar problem to the one asked, and your idea worked perfectly in my case too. Keep up doing this good work!!!
