bmptypes.h is a file of datatypes used in bitmaps.
endian.c contains functions that read and write basic integer types from a little-endian file.
endian.h is the header for endian.c.
readbmp.c contains mid-level functions for reading bitmap structures and high-level functions that read bitmap files.
readbmp.h is the header for readbmp.c.
test.c is a test program for reading bitmap files; it accepts an input file on the command line.
