       vga_getpalette - get a color in the color lookup table


       #include <vga.h>

       void vga_getpalette(int index, int *r, int *g, int *b);


       Get  the  color  with  index index and store its RGB values at *r, *g, and *b, each in the
       range 0 - 63. This function is only sensible in 16 or 256 color modes.  It  returns  which
       color all vga_setcolor(index) drawn pixels actually refer to.

       If  the  VGA_CLUT8 feature is set for the current mode with vga_ext_set(3) the *r, *g, and
       *b values are in the range 0 - 255.

       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
