       vga_setpalette - 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

       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.

       This  manual  page  was  edited by Michael Weller <eowmob@exp-math.uni->. The exact source of the referenced function as  well  as  of
       the original documentation is unknown.

       It is very likely that both are at least to some extent are due to Harm

       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.
