       gl_enablepageflipping - enables automatic page flipping


       #include <vgagl.h>

       int gl_enablepageflipping(GraphicsContext *gc);


       Enable  page  flipping  or  triple buffering in gl_copyscreen(3) if the
       physical context gc can do it.

       Returns 3 if triple buffering will be used, 2 for page flipping,  0  if
       page flipping is not possible (due to video memory/mode limitations).

       When  pageflipping  is  enabled,  the  gl_screenoffset(3) is ignored in

       The idea is that you draw your picture in gc and copy it to the  screen
       by consecutive gl_copyscreen(3) calls. Each of these will choose a free
       buffer in the screen and adjust the display start accourdingly.

       The current context must by the VGA when gl_copyscreen(3) is called  in
       this situation.
