bg_test - test the background mode of svgalib
Tests the enhanced support of recent svgalibs to draw while
switched to the background. Draws a small centered white box
then waits until you switch to another vc. Draws some outer
box frame around it
while background, which you can see
when you switch back to it. For obvious reasons, your version
of svgalib must have
BACKGROUND support enabled (which is the
default as of this writing).

The demo uses a
G320x200x256 mode or the one you set with
If you specify the
linear parameter the demo will use
to test linear mode in background.
This demo is part of svgalib and can be found in the
demos/ subdirectory of the original svgalib distribution. However, it is not installed in the system
by default, s.t. it is unclear where you can find it if your svgalib was installed by some
linux distribution. Even then, when you have the demo on your system, you probably wont have
the sources s.t. it is only of limited use for you.
In case of any such problem, simply get an svgalib distribution from the net. You even
dont need to install it. Just
make in the
demos/ subdirecty. As of this writing,
svgalib-1.2.12.tar.gz is the latest version and can be retrieved by ftp from
sunsite.unc.edu at /pub/Linux/libs/graphics and
tsx-11.mit.edu at /pub/linux/sources/libs which will most probably be mirrored by a site close to you.

asked to be excused by the original author and will happily accept any additions or corrections
to this first version of the svgalib manual.
