NAME

	AllocBitMap -- Allocate a bitmap and attach bitplanes to it. (V39)

SYNOPSIS

	bitmap=AllocBitMap(sizex,sizey,depth, flags, friend_bitmap)
d0 d1 d2 d3 a0
struct BitMap *AllocBitMap(ULONG,ULONG,ULONG,ULONG, struct BitMap *);

FUNCTION

	Allocates and initializes a bitmap structure. Allocates and initializes
bitplane data, and sets the bitmap's planes to point to it.

INPUTS

	sizex = the width (in pixels) desired for the bitmap data.
sizey = the height (in pixels) desired.
depth = the number of bitplanes deep for the allocation.
Pixels with AT LEAST this many bits will be allocated.
flags = BMF_CLEAR to specify that the allocated raster should be
filled with color 0.
BMF_DISPLAYABLE to specify that this bitmap data should
be allocated in such a manner that it can be displayed.
Displayable data has more severe alignment restrictions
than non-displayable data in some systems.
BMF_INTERLEAVED tells graphics that you would like your
bitmap to be allocated with one large chunk of display
memory for all bitplanes. This minimizes color flashing
on deep displays. If there is not enough contiguous RAM
for an interleaved bitmap, graphics.library will fall
back to a non-interleaved one.
BMF_MINPLANES causes graphics to only allocate enough space
in the bitmap structure for "depth" plane pointers. This
is for system use and should not be used by applications use
as it is inefficient, and may waste memory.
friend_bitmap = pointer to another bitmap, or NULL. If this pointer
is passed, then the bitmap data will be allocated in
the most efficient form for blitting to friend_bitmap.

BUGS

NOTES

	When allocating using a friend bitmap, it is not safe to assume
anything about the structure of the bitmap data if that friend
BitMap might not be a standard amiga bitmap (for instance, if
the workbench is running on a non-amiga display device, its
Screen->RastPort->BitMap won't be in standard amiga format.
The only safe operations to perform on a non-standard BitMap are:
- blitting it to another bitmap, which must be either a standard
Amiga bitmap, or a friend of this bitmap.
- blitting from this bitmap to a friend bitmap or to a standard
Amiga bitmap.
- attaching it to a rastport and making rendering calls.
Good arguments to pass for the friend_bitmap are your window's
RPort->BitMap, and your screen's RastPort->BitMap.
Do NOT pass &(screenptr->BitMap)!
BitMaps not allocated with BMF_DISPLAYABLE may not be used as
Intuition Custom BitMaps or as RasInfo->BitMaps. They may be blitted
to a BMF_DISPLAYABLE BitMap, using one of the BltBitMap() family of
functions.
