gl_setfont(3)          Svgalib User Manual          gl_setfont(3)

NAME
       gl_setfont - set the text font to be used

SYNOPSIS
       #include <vgagl.h>

       void gl_setfont(int fw, int fh, void *fp);

DESCRIPTION
       Use the font stored as character bitmaps at fp, with char-
       acters of size (fw, fh), as the basic font for write oper-
       ations. Note that the font included in the library must be
       expanded first, because it is stored  bit-per-pixel;  this
       is  not required if the FONT_COMPRESSED gl_setwritemode(3)
       flag is set.
