       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
