getr, getg, getb, geta - Extract a color component from the current pixel format. Allegro game programming library.


#include <allegro.h>

int getr(int c);

int getg(int c);

int getb(int c);

int geta(int c);


Given a color in the format being used by the current video mode, these functions extract one of the red, green, blue, or alpha components (ranging 0-255), calling the preceding 8, 15, 16, 24, or 32-bit get functions as appropriate. The alpha part is only meaningful for 32-bit pixels. Example:

int r, g, b, color_value;

color_value = getpixel(screen, 100, 100);
r = getr(color_value);
g = getg(color_value);
b = getb(color_value);
