gl_font8x8(3)          Svgalib User Manual          gl_font8x8(3)

NAME
       gl_font8x8 - a packed 8x8 pixel font

SYNOPSIS
       #include <vgagl.h>

       extern unsigned char *gl_font8x8;

DESCRIPTION
       gl_font8x8  contains  a  packed pixel font with 8x8 pixels
       per character which you can use in  your  vgagl  programs.
       Before  you  can  use it, you might need to expand it with
       gl_expandfont(3), though.

       It is possible to  use  non  expanded  fonts  (but  it  is
       slower)  when  the FONT_COMPRESSED gl_setwritemode(3) flag
       is set.
