NAME

       gl_setwritemode - set the font writemode flags

SYNOPSIS

       #include <vgagl.h>

       void gl_setwritemode(int m);

DESCRIPTION

       Sets  the  writemode flags for the font routines. It must be the sum of
       exactly one choice out of the following two groups:

       WRITEMODE_MASKED
       WRITEMODE_OVERWRITE (default)
              If WRITEMODE_MASKED is set, only foreground pixels of  the  font
              are  used  for  write  operations;  the screen background is not
              erased.

       FONT_COMPRESSED
       FONT_EXPANDED (default)
              If FONT_COMPRESSED is set, text writes will use  the  compressed
              bit-per-pixel font rather than the expanded font (which would be
              slightly faster).
