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
              interlaced.
       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.
