This sample has been updated for the Carbon API. This contains the code for rotating a string 90 degrees counter clockwise. This one is easy to use. Just call RotateString("pRotate Me",&rotatedBitMap), and you will get back a BitMap the size of the text that you can CopyBits anywhere you like. RotateString will allocate the destination BitMap for you. Requirements: QuickDraw, CarbonLib Keywords: RotateString, rotate, Carbon
