       eventtest - test	the waitevent function of svgalib


       This  is	 a  kind of an upgraded	keytest(6) and mousetest(6) demo using
       the vga_waitevent(3) function.

       Use mouse to move  cursor.   <1>-<9>,  <0>  to  set  the	 cursor	 size.
       <Space>	to  change the cursor color. Left button to draw. Right	button
       or <Q> to bailout.

       The cursor goes on/off every half second	by usage of a  timeout	passed
       to  vga_waitevent(3).   Every  5	 seconds a string from a child process
       (the time) arrives asynchronously and is	 displayed  by	the  frontend.
       This comes in through a pipe(2) which is	monitored by vga_waitevent(2).

       You  can	set a videomode	to use by setting the environment variable SV-
       GALIB_DEFAULT_MODE to a number (see vgatest for a  list)	 or  a	string
       like  G0x1x2  where you replace 0 with desired x	resolution, 1 with the
       desired y rez, and 2 with the desired number of	colors	(2,  16,  256,
       32K,  64K,  16M,	 16M4).	Again, only certain choices are	available, see
       vgatest for a list.

       In case nothing is selected, G320x200x256 is choosen.

       This demo is part of svgalib and	can be found in	the  demos/  subdirec-
       tory of the original svgalib distribution. However, it is not installed
       in the system by	default, s.t. it is unclear where you can find	it  if
       your  svgalib was installed by some linux distribution. Even then, when
       you have	the demo on your system, you probably won't have  the  sources
       s.t. it is only of limited use for you.

       In  case	 of  any such problem, simply get an svgalib distribution from
       the net.	You even don't need to install it. Just	 make  in  the	demos/
       subdirecty.  As	of  this  writing, svgalib-1.2.12.tar.gz is the	latest
       version	and  can  be  retrieved	 by  ftp   from   at
       /pub/Linux/libs/graphics	 and at /pub/linux/sources/libs
       which will most probably	be mirrored by a site close to you.
