       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

       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 -

       The function returns the value of num.

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