vga_setpalette(3) set a color in the color lookup table


#include <vga.h>

void vga_setpalette(int index, int r, int g, int b);


Set the current color with index index to RGB values r, g, and b, each in the range 0 - 63. This function is only sensible in 16 or 256 color modes. It selects which color all vga_setcolor(index) drawn pixels will actually refer to.

Note that setting color 0 will modify the background color and that setting any color in range 0 .. 15 will affect the operation of vga_setegacolor(3).

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

The vgatest(6) demo shows the basic use of this function.

It is very likely that both are at least to some extent are due to Harm Hanemaayer <[email protected]>.

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.
