NAME
       create_bitmap_ex - Creates a memory bitmap specifying color depth.
       Allegro game programming library.

SYNOPSIS
       #include <allegro.h>


       BITMAP *create_bitmap_ex(int color_depth, int width, int height);

DESCRIPTION
       Creates a bitmap in a specific color depth (8, 15, 16, 24 or 32 bits per
       pixel). Example:

          /* Create screen sized bitmap in 32 bits per pixel. */
          BITMAP *bmp = create_bitmap_ex(32, SCREEN_W, SCREEN_H);
          if (!bmp)
             abort_on_error("Couldn't create bitmap!");
          /* Use the bitmap. */
          ...
          /* Destroy it when we don't need it any more. */
          destroy_bitmap(bmp);

RETURN VALUE
       Returns a pointer to the created bitmap, or NULL if the bitmap could not
       be created. Remember to free this bitmap later to avoid memory leaks.
