Best way to rotate a CBitmap image

I need to rotate a CBitmap that may have any number of colors in it depending on the current system color palette. It needs to be turned 90 degrees counter-clockwise.  What is the best way to do this? I'm using Visual C++ 4.1 in NT 4.0 and Win95.

Sample code would be very appreciated!

Hi:
  I used to do something like that, what I did is create a memory
DC to save the transfered the bitmap, then use BitBlt copy to screenDC, the transfer is:

   CDC bmpDC,memDC;
   bmpDC.CreateCompatibleDC(&dc);  
   memDC.CreateCompatibleDC(&dc);
   CBitmap *oldmBmp,trs_Bmp,*oldtBmp;
   trs_Bmp.CreateCompatibleBitmap(&dc,cxDIB,cyDIB);
   oldmBmp=bmpDC.SelectObject(&org_Bmp);
   oldtBmp=memDC.SelectObject(&trs_Bmp);    

   for (int y=0;y<cyDIB;y++)
    for (int x=0;x<cxDIB;x++)
         memDC.StretchBlt(y,cyDIB-x,1,1,&bmpDC,x,y,1,1,SRCCOPY);
   
  dc.StretchBlt(dstRect.left,
                dstRect.top,
                dstRect.Width(),
                dstRect.Height(),
                &trsDC,
                 0,
                 0,
                 cxDIB,
                 cyDIB,
                 SRCCOPY);
   
     bmpDC.SelectObject(oldmBmp);
     memDC.SelectObject(oldtBmp);  
 
 It works well, the problem is too slow for transfer big bitmap especially on slow machine(such as 640*480 on 486). but it is really a way though I don't think it is not the best way.
 Hopy I can help you.
