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).
