vgatest(6)		      Svgalib User Manual		    vgatest(6)

       vgatest - makes basic tests on any svgalib graphics mode


       Mode  test  program.  First  the	 program gives a list of the supported
       modes, then you enter a number and get a	testimage in that mode.

       The testimage consists of a sequence of crosses (in  different  colors,
       if the mode support has different colors) in the	top left corner.

       Below  you see three color bars red, green, blue	with increasing	inten-
       sity from left to right.	Depending on the capabilities of the mode they
       are more	or less	jumpy (or smooth for true color).

       In  case	 of  modes with	32K or more colors, six	squares	will appear on
       top of that, each showing some different	smooth color shades

       It also shows some details from vga_getmodeinfo(3).

       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.
