       gl_setfont - set the text font to be used


       #include <vgagl.h>

       void gl_setfont(int fw, int fh, void *fp);


       Use  the  font stored as character bitmaps at fp, with characters of size (fw, fh), as the
       basic font for write operations. Note that the  font  included  in  the  library  must  be
       expanded  first,  because  it  is  stored  bit-per-pixel;  this  is  not  required  if the
       FONT_COMPRESSED gl_setwritemode(3) flag is set.

       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
