       vga_setpalette - set a color in the color lookup table


       #include <vga.h>

       void vga_setpalette(int index, int r, int g, int b);


       Set  the  current  color with index index to RGB values r, g, and b, each in the range 0 -
       63. This function is only sensible in 16 or 256 color modes. It selects  which  color  all
       vga_setcolor(index) drawn pixels will actually refer to.

       Note  that  setting color 0 will modify the background color and that setting any color in
       range 0 .. 15 will affect the operation of vga_setegacolor(3).

       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.

       The vgatest(6) demo shows the basic use of this function.

       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
