draw_sprite(3)			Allegro	manual			draw_sprite(3)

       draw_sprite  -  Draws a copy of the sprite onto the destination bitmap.
       Allegro game programming	library.

       #include	<allegro.h>

       void draw_sprite(BITMAP *bmp, BITMAP *sprite, int x, int	y);

       Draws a copy of the sprite bitmap onto the destination  bitmap  at  the
       specified  position. This is almost the same as blit(sprite, bmp, 0, 0,
       x, y, sprite->w,	sprite->h), but	it uses	a masked  drawing  mode	 where
       transparent  pixels  are	 skipped,  so  the  background image will show
       through the masked parts	of the sprite. Transparent pixels  are	marked
       by a zero in 256-color modes or bright pink for truecolor data (maximum
       red and blue, zero green). Example:

	  BITMAP *spaceship;
	  draw_sprite(screen, spaceship, x, y);

       If the GFX_HW_VRAM_BLIT_MASKED bit in the gfx_capabilities flag is set,
       the  current  driver  supports hardware accelerated sprite drawing when
       the source image	is a video  memory  bitmap  or	a  sub-bitmap  of  the
       screen.	This  is  extremely  fast,  so when this flag is set it	may be
       worth storing some of your more frequently used sprites in an offscreen
       portion of the video memory.

       Warning:	 if  the  hardware acceleration	flag is	not set, draw_sprite()
       will not	work correctly when used with a	 sprite	 image	in  system  or
       video memory so the latter must be a memory bitmap.

       Although	 generally not supporting graphics of mixed color depths, as a
       special case this function can be used to draw 256-color	source	images
       onto  truecolor	destination bitmaps, so	you can	use palette effects on
       specific	sprites	within a truecolor program.
