NAME

       vga_getpixel - get a pixels value from the screen

SYNOPSIS

       #include <vga.h>

       int vga_getpixel(int x, int y);

DESCRIPTION

       Read  a  pixels  value  from  the  screen.  This  function is very inefficient, you should
       consider doing direct screen access instead or use vga_getscansegment(3)  to  handle  more
       than one pixel.

       This manual page was edited by Michael Weller  <eowmob@exp-math.uni-essen.de>.  The  exact
       source of the referenced function as well as of the original documentation is unknown.

       It  is  very  likely  that  both  are  at  least to some extent are due to Harm Hanemaayer
       <H.Hanemaayer@inter.nl.net>.

       Occasionally this might be wrong. I hereby asked to be excused by the original author  and

       manual.
