NAME

       gl_allocatecontext - allocate a graphics context

SYNOPSIS

       #include <vgagl.h>

       GraphicsContext *gl_allocatecontext(void);

DESCRIPTION

       Allocate  a graphics context. This is preferred to hardcoding a context
       variable in a program since the latter is incompatible  with  a  future
       vgagl version that have additional context fields.
