draw_compiled_sprite: Draws a compiled sprite. Allegro game programming library.
NAMEdraw_compiled_sprite - Draws a compiled sprite. Allegro game programming library.
DESCRIPTIONDraws a compiled sprite onto a bitmap at the specified position. The sprite must have been compiled for the correct type of bitmap (linear or planar). This function does not support clipping.
Hint: if not being able to clip compiled sprites is a problem, a neat trick is to set up a work surface (memory bitmap, mode-X virtual screen, or whatever) a bit bigger than you really need, and use the middle of it as your screen. That way you can draw slightly off the edge without any trouble...
