bg_test(6)		      Svgalib User Manual		    bg_test(6)

NAME
       bg_test - test the background mode of svgalib

SYNOPSIS
       bg_test [linear]

DESCRIPTION
       Tests the enhanced support of recent svgalibs to draw while switched to
       the background. Draws a small centered white box then waits  until  you
       switch  to another vc. Draws some outer box frame around it while back‐
       ground, which you can see when you switch back to it. For obvious  rea‐
       sons,  your  version  of	 svgalib  must have BACKGROUND support enabled
       (which is the default as of this writing).  When	 finished,  press  any
       key to end bg_test.

       The   demo   uses   a  G320x200x256  mode  or  the  one	you  set  with
       SVGALIB_DEFAULT_MODE.

       If you specify the linear parameter the	demo  will  use	 vgagl(7)  and
       vga_setlinearaddressing(3) to test linear mode in background.

       This  demo  is part of svgalib and can be found in the demos/ subdirec‐
       tory 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.

AUTHOR
       This manual page was edited  by	Michael	 Weller	 <eowmob@exp-math.uni-
       essen.de>.  The	exact  source of the referenced demo as well as of the
       original documentation is unknown.

       It is very likely that both are at least to some extent are due to Harm
       Hanemaayer <H.Hanemaayer@inter.nl.net>.

       Occasionally  this  might be wrong. I hereby asked to be excused by the
       original author and will happily accept any additions or corrections to
       this first version of the svgalib manual.
