       speedtest - tests the speed of memory access under svgalib


       Video  memory  speed  tester.  Selects  the given mode and makes	linear
       screen accesses.	Prints the overall run time of the  test  and  deduces
       the speed with which the	CPU can	transfer data to the cards memory.

       The  demo gives a list of modes supported and prompts your for an inte-
       ger indentifying	the mode to test.

       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.

       This  manual page was edited by Michael Weller <eowmob@exp-math.uni-es->.	The exact source of the	referenced demo	 as  well  as  of  the
       original	documentation is unknown.

       It is very likely that both are at least	to some	extent are due to Harm
       Hanemaayer <>.

       Occasionally this might be wrong. I hereby asked	to be excused  by  the
       original	author and will	happily	accept any additions or	corrections to
       this first version of the svgalib manual.
