       vga_drawscansegment - draw a horizontal line of pixels


       #include <vga.h>

       int vga_drawscansegment(unsigned char *colors, int x, int y, int length);


       draws  a  horizontal  line of length pixels starting at position (x, y).  The colors drawn
       are taken from color[0] .. color[length - 1].  Svgalib versions prior to  1.2.10  required
       x,  y,  and length to be multiples of 8. This is no longer true.  In high/truecolor modes,
       the length must be given in bytes, not pixels.

       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
       will happily accept any additions or corrections to this  first  version  of  the  svgalib
