I declare an unsigned char *temp. Now, how do I copy the content of an "unsigned char *test"?
This is what I did temp = test. But it's pointing to the same pointer and not the content.

How do I compare the content of an "unsigned char *" if they are the same?

Thank you

Sorry. The site is very confusing. How do I move it to programming section?
My goal is to compare bitmap images to see if they are the same.
