       printftest - tests the vgagl gl_printf function

       printftest x y

       This test utility reads keys from the keyboard and displays them	on the
       screen at pixel position	(x, y) using gl_printf(3).  It must be	linked
       with the	ELF svgalib libraries.

       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.

       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.

Svgalib	1.3.0			 8 April 1997			 printftest(6)
