NAME
       vga_getdefaultmode - returns the default graphics mode number

SYNOPSIS
       #include <vga.h>

       int vga_getdefaultmode(void);

DESCRIPTION
       Returns the default graphics mode number from the SVGALIB_DEFAULT_MODE
       environment variable; -1 if undefined. The environment variable can
       either be a mode number or a mode name. See vga_setmode(3) for a list
       of predefined return values and their meaning. The mode names which can
       be used in the environment are those used by vga_getmodename(3) and
       vga_getmodenumber(3).

       Whenever your application has no special need for a given mode you
       should always try to honour this setting for consistency among svgalib
       applications.
