Load all the data from a file path.

Header File

Defined in <SDL3/SDL_iostream.h>


void* SDL_LoadFile(const char *file, size_t *datasize);

Function Parameters

const char * file the path to read all available data from.
size_t * datasize if not NULL, will store the number of bytes read.

Return Value

(void *) Returns the data, or NULL if there was an error.


The data is allocated with a zero byte at the end (null terminated) for convenience. This extra byte is not included in the value reported via datasize.

The data should be freed with SDL_free().


This function is available since SDL 3.0.0.
