vga_getgraphmem(3)            Svgalib User Manual           vga_getgraphmem(3)

NAME
       vga_getgraphmem - returns the address of the VGA memory

SYNOPSIS
       #include <vga.h>

       unsigned char *graph_mem; /* This declaration is already in vga.h */

       unsigned char *vga_getgraphmem(void);

DESCRIPTION
       returns a pointer to the 64K VGA frame buffer window.  vga_setpage(3),
       vga_setreadpage(3) and  vga_setwritepage(3) allow to select which page
       of the VGA memory shows up at this position.
       vga_setlinearaddressing(3) maps all VGA memory at a consecutive memory
       area (if the hardware supports it).  In this mode, vga_getgraphmem()
       will return the location of this area too. You can also access the
       global variable graph_mem, which will also contain this address.

       Most demos, esp.  vgatest(6) show the simple direct use of this
       function to access screen memory.
