RE: can we create images from text?

To continue....

What is the "bitmap data array" needed for Fl_Bitmap?
I've been throwing stuff into the mix for days (well, 2 days, and not full days, mind you...far from it), and all I get from Fl_Bitmap is an image that doesn't look like an image. I've tried X Pixmap data, X Bitmap data (2 varieties, neither of which I could understand to begin with), and the only thing I found online was relating to gdk, which I couldn't understand either.

I'm thinking about just creating an array of 1s and 0s (or spaces) to lay out an ascii-type image, but it seems like a whole lot of work for something that is just a guess.

Maybe it's time I started looking into the drawing functions, but it still seems too complicated when I already have many other more basic things to learn about FLTK.
