Shareware/Freeware application to demonstrate use of color 8bit (mode 19) VGA programming. Source & executables were originally distrubed with the book "Graphics Programming Solutions" by Julio Sanches and Maria Canton in 1993.Should also be in "The PC Graphics Handbook" by Julio Sanches and Maria Canton in 2003.
Renders the first 16 colors of 256 color VGA (mode 19).
What does not
Pallettes are not fully implemented, so many pixels are rendered as black.
Text also does not display because of stubbed VGA pixel masking functionality.
What was not tested
Nothing really. It's just a simple display of the 8bit (mode 19) VGA palettes.
patch does exist to give full default palette.
