gl_allocatecontext(3)  Svgalib User Manual  gl_allocatecontext(3)

NAME
       gl_allocatecontext - allocate a graphics context

SYNOPSIS
       #include <vgagl.h>

       GraphicsContext *gl_allocatecontext(void);

DESCRIPTION
       Allocate a graphics context. This is preferred to hardcod-
       ing a context variable in a program since  the  latter  is
       incompatible  with  a future vgagl version that have addi-
       tional context fields.
