void gl_write(int x, int y, char *s);
void gl_writen(int x, int y, int n ,char *s);
DESCRIPTIONgl_write writes the zero terminated string s to position (x, y) using the currently selected font.
gl_writen works similarly, but writes exactly n characters, thus allowing to use the character 0.
The kind of text draw operation is set with gl_setwritemode(3).
A good default initialization sequence is:
gl_setfont(8, 8, gl_font8x8);
gl_setwritemode(FONT_COMPRESSED + WRITEMODE_OVERWRITE);

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.
