       vga_setpalvec - sets colors in the color lookup table


       #include <vga.h>

       int vga_setpalvec(int start, int num, int *pal);


       Sets the num colors starting with index start to the RGB values in *pal. *pal contains 3 *
       num integers which are the color values to set from first to last  palette  entry  in  the
       order red, green, blue (always three consecutive entries in *pal built a palette entry.

       Each  color  entry  is  in range 0 - 63. This function is only sensible in 16 or 256 color
       modes. It selects which color all vga_setcolor(start) (and num - 1 following colors) 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  red,  green,
       and blue values are in the range 0 - 255.

       The function returns the value of num.

       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
