NAME

       select_palette  - Sets the internal palette for color conversion. Allegro game programming
       library.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       void select_palette(const PALETTE p);

DESCRIPTION

       Ugly hack for use in various dodgy situations where you need to convert  between  paletted
       and  truecolor  image  formats.  Sets  the  internal  palette table in the same way as the
       set_palette() function, so the conversion will use  the  specified  palette,  but  without
       affecting  the display hardware in any way. The previous palette settings are stored in an
       internal  buffer,  and  can  be  restored  by  calling  unselect_palette().  If  you  call
       select_palette() again, however, the internal buffer will be overwritten.
