NAME
       vga_getpalvec - gets colors from the color lookup table

SYNOPSIS
       #include <vga.h>

       int vga_getpalvec(int start, int num, int *pal);

DESCRIPTION
       Gets the num colors starting with index start from the color lookup
       table and stores the RGB values in *pal. *pal contains  3 * num
       integers which are the color values from first to last palette entry in
       the order red, green, blue (always three consecutive entries in *pal
       built a palette entry.

       Each color entry is in range 0 - 63. This function is only sensible in
       16 or 256 color modes. It shows which color all vga_setcolor(start)
       (and num - 1 following colors) drawn pixels will actually refer to.

       If the VGA_CLUT8 feature is set for the current mode with
       vga_ext_set(3) the red, green, and blue values are in the range 0 -
       255.

       The function returns the value of num.
