       vga_gettextmoderegs, vga_settextmoderegs - get/set the vga state used in text mode


       #include <vga.h>

       void vga_gettextmoderegs(void *state);
       void vga_settextmoderegs(void *state);


       The  functions  gives  access to the buffer where svgalib saves the vga state which is use
       when the kernel displays text on the  SVGA.   This  is  used  by  the  restoretextmode(1),
       savetextmode(1), and textmode(1) utilities to restore a possibly screwed console.

       The  buffer  currently  occupies  385 bytes. It can't do any harm to make it substantially
       larger to allow for future enhancements.


       svgalib(7),    vgagl(7),     libvga.config(5),     restorefont(1),     restoretextmode(1),
       restorepalette(1),   savetextmode(1),  textmode(1),  vga_dumpregs(3),  vga_gettextfont(3),


       This manual page was edited by Michael Weller  <>.  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

       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
