NAME
       vgatest - makes basic tests on any svgalib graphics mode

SYNOPSIS
       vgatest

DESCRIPTION
       Mode test program. First the program gives a list of the supported
       modes, then you enter a number and get a testimage in that mode.

       The testimage consists of a sequence of crosses (in different colors,
       if the mode support has different colors) in the top left corner.

       Below you see three color bars red, green, blue with increasing
       intensity from left to right. Depending on the capabilities of the mode
       they are more or less jumpy (or smooth for true color).

       In case of modes with 32K or more colors, six squares will appear on
       top of that, each showing some different smooth color shades

       It also shows some details from vga_getmodeinfo(3).

       This demo is part of svgalib and can be found in the demos/
       subdirectory of the original svgalib distribution. However, it is not
       installed in the system by default, s.t. it is unclear where you can
       find it if your svgalib was installed by some linux distribution. Even
       then, when you have the demo on your system, you probably won't have
       the sources s.t. it is only of limited use for you.

       In case of any such problem, simply get an svgalib distribution from
       the net. You even don't need to install it. Just make in the demos/
       subdirecty. As of this writing, svgalib-1.2.12.tar.gz is the latest
       version and can be retrieved by ftp from sunsite.unc.edu at
       /pub/Linux/libs/graphics and tsx-11.mit.edu at /pub/linux/sources/libs
       which will most probably be mirrored by a site close to you.
