I am beginning to create some games in C.  I need to know how to use the SBFMDRV.COM which comes with Sound Blaster and compatibles to play music.  For me to accept an answer I need a library of functions for loading in MIDI or other musical files that SBFMDRV.COM can read.  I also need the library to include functions for playing the music (it must work in the background).

Thank you

Is there a reason for not using Windows? Windows already has all of the capabilities you're looking for and makes it relatively easy.

This is a short and sweet, but (hopefully) to the point article. There seems to be some fundamental misunderstanding about the function prototype for the "main" function in C and C++, more specifically what type this function should return. I see so…
