       vga_getdefaultmode - returns the default graphics mode number


       #include <vga.h>

       int vga_getdefaultmode(void);


       Returns  the  default  graphics  mode  number  from  the  SVGALIB_DEFAULT_MODE environment
       variable; -1 if undefined. The environment variable can either be a mode number or a  mode
       name.  See  vga_setmode(3)  for  a list of predefined return values and their meaning. The
       mode names which can be used in the environment are those used by  vga_getmodename(3)  and

       Whenever  your  application  has no special need for a given mode you should always try to
       honour this setting for consistency among svgalib applications.
