       gl_font8x8 - a packed 8x8 pixel font


       #include <vgagl.h>

       extern unsigned char *gl_font8x8;


       gl_font8x8  contains  a packed pixel font with 8x8 pixels per character
       which you can use in your vgagl programs. Before you can  use  it,  you
       might need to expand it with gl_expandfont(3), though.

       It  is  possible  to use non expanded fonts (but it is slower) when the
       FONT_COMPRESSED gl_setwritemode(3) flag is set.

       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
