al_fread - Allegro 5 API

#include <allegro5/allegro.h>
size_t al_fread(ALLEGRO_FILE *f, void *ptr, size_t size)

Read `size' bytes into the buffer pointed to by `ptr', from the given file.

Returns the number of bytes actually read. If an error occurs, or the end-of-file is reached, the return value is a short byte count (or zero).

al_fread() does not distinguish between EOF and other errors. Use al_feof(3) and al_ferror(3) to determine which occurred.
