       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  Hanemaayer

       Occasionally  this might be wrong. I hereby asked to be excused by the original author and
