vga_getmonitortype(3)	      Svgalib User Manual	 vga_getmonitortype(3)

NAME
       vga_getmonitortype - returns the	monitor	type configured

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<vga.h>

       int vga_getmonitortype(void);

DESCRIPTION
       This  returns  the  monitor  type configered in /etc/vga/libvga.config.
       This function is	really obsolete, as the	result is of not much  use  to
       the  application	vga_getmodeinfo(3) and vga_hasmode(3) do already check
       the monitor type	and there are more flexible ways to specify it too.

       The return value	is one of:

       MON640_60
	      31.5 KHz (standard VGA): does 640x480 in 60Hz vsync.
       MON800_56
	      35.1 KHz (old SVGA): does	800x600	in 56Hz	vsync.
       MON1024_43I
	      35.5 KHz (low-end	SVGA, 8514): does 1024x768 in 43Hz  vsync  in-
	      terlaced.
       MON800_60
	      37.9 KHz (SVGA): does 800x600 in 60Hz vsync.
       MON1024_60
	      48.3  KHz	 (SVGA	non-interlaced):  does 1024x768	in 60Hz	vsync,
	      non-interlaced.
       MON1024_70
	      56.0 KHz (SVGA high frequency): does 1024x768 in 70Hz vsync.
       MON1024_72
	      does 1024x768 in 72Hz vsync or even better.
