vga_getmodename(3)	      Svgalib User Manual	    vga_getmodename(3)

NAME
       vga_getmodename - return	a name for the given video mode

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<vga.h>

       char *vga_getmodename(int mode);

DESCRIPTION
       A  pointer  to a	static memory buffer is	returned. Depending on mode it
       consist of a capital G followed by the amount of	x pixels, followed  by
       a lower case x, followed	by the amount of y pixels, followed by a lower
       case x.	Finally	the number of different	colors is appended.  Here  the
       shortcuts 32K,64K,16M, and 16M4 are used	for 32768, 65536, and 16777216
       are used. The last refers also to 16777216 which	are store in  4	 bytes
       (highest	address	byte unused) for easier	screen access.

       For unsupported values of mode the empty	string "" is returned. In gen-
       eral the	string resembles the corresponding #define for	the  videomode
       in #include <vga.h>.

EXAMPLE
       vga_getmodename(10) returns "G640x480x256".
