I know this question is REALLY simple, if you have a link to a good web page...

I have been looking for days now, I have TRIED to get Allegro to work, but there are always problems with the zip, plus I have NO CLUE what djgpp or whatever the heck that language is called...

I just ask that someone would either:
1)  (Preferably) post the code to play MIDI files using PURE C AND ASSEMBLY or
2)  Give me the address of a web page that can do this.

Now, one thing is that I have about two days or less that I can spend figuring out how to work the code, so I need code that is simple, lots of sub-routines that take care of everything for me, and I need it within 7 to 9 days.

The time restraints are because I am using it in a school project.

Thanks a lot!

By the way, I would prefer a library of ONLY sound routines, but if I must you can also include some graphics routines, but I already have graphics routines and will not use any graphics routines I get from you or the sight you direct me to.

Sorry, I might 'cite' that you direct me to, not 'sight' that you direct me to...

I'm going to bring some of these routines home and test them out.  If they work I'll give you a grade, otherwise I'll reject them, it might be up to 2 or 3 days until I can check them all.

I found a MIDI player that worked...  It took me a LONG time because I have the Microsoft compiler which is not popular for C programming.  Everything was written for Borland, Watcom, Turbo, and other C compilers.  (Of course, Microsoft's compiler is VERY popular for C++ Windows programs :-)

To play midi you must know the Midi file format, and to use Sound Blaster you should know how to program on Sound card.
I suggest you go find some manual of sound card and Midi file format. I have ever found one but deleted accidentally, and can't get it anymore.
