NAME

       gl_write, gl_writen - write a text string

SYNOPSIS

       #include <vgagl.h>

       void gl_write(int x, int y, char *s);
       void gl_writen(int x, int y, int n ,char *s);

DESCRIPTION

       gl_write  writes  the zero terminated string s to position (x, y) using
       the currently selected font.

       gl_writen works  similarly,  but  writes  exactly  n  characters,  thus
       allowing to use the character 0.

       The kind of text draw operation is set with gl_setwritemode(3).

       BEWARE!   Prior  to the of use of gl_write(3) and gl_writen(3) you must
       set a font.

       A good default initialization sequence is:

       gl_setfont(8, 8, gl_font8x8);
       gl_setwritemode(FONT_COMPRESSED + WRITEMODE_OVERWRITE);
       gl_setfontcolors(0, vga_white());
